[Gmsh] Mapped meshing

I am trying to create a mesh for an axisymmetric geometry, which is
relatively simple, defined by a few points, resp curves connecting them. I
would like, however, to perform mapped meshing where I partition the curves,
then use these partitions on 4-side surface regions to partition the
regions, and then revolve-extrude the mesh around the symmetry axis. As far
as I can see, the first step is currently not possible in GMSH, because for
surface mesh it can only generate triangle mesh (or extrude 1D mesh, which
however is not possible in this case). Is there any workaround? Is mapped
meshing planned to be implemented in GMSH, and for simple cases like that,
can it be a short term feasible task?
