Ribbons with Spawn From Other Emitter?

Is there a way to set up ribbons to work with the ‘Spawn Particles from Other Emitter’ module?

In 4.27 the ribbon renderer complains about not being able to work on the GPU, but then the help on the SPfOE: Calculate Spawn Rate Per Particle says:

“Ideal for ribbons behind lead particles and other cases where consistent counts is required from each leader.”

Then there’s also Initialize Ribbon versus Initialize Particle, and SPfOE wants the latter so I’m getting all sorts of mixed messages…

Can someone confirm or deny the functionality? Thank you,
