Is it possible to compute a value from issues filtered in swimlanes and display in title?

There are two things that I'm looking to set up in a kanban project:


1) Is it possible to add up the values of a field from each filtered issue in a swimlane?

2) Is it then possible to display the sum of the values in the swimlane title (see Total field in mockup below)


I haven't been able to find much with regards to customizing the swimlane title, and it doesn't sound like JQL has the means of calculating a value based on filtered data.  

Has anyone else run into a similar problem, and were you able to come up with a solution?

@Jeremy Little, this sounds like a valid new requirement. I do not know any solution for this, but only to raise a suggestion issue in Atlassian's Jira. Probably someone else had the same or similar idea.

It appears that was posted for customizing the header, and that it has been closed as not on the roadmap.
