CurieBle Central Device Possible?

All the examples for using the Bluetooth Low Energy on the Arduino 101 have the Arduino acting as a peripheral, so other devices can read data from it.

I have a BLE peripheral that I would like to read data from (into the Arduino 101). Is it possible for the Arduino 101 to connect to this device as a central?

Found my answer here:

It seems that the library only supports peripheral mode. I assume this is purely a software limitation and the hardware can indeed act as a central? Is there any plan for such functionality in the future?

I purchased two of these with the intention of connecting other BLE devices to them, and am disappointed to see that I cannot.
