Inkjet printing on PLA or ABS

Hey RepRap

I just had an idea hit me, and I wasn't sure if the 3D printing community had tried it yet. Could a inkjet printer cartridge be attached adjacent to the nozzle, then be used to dye the plastic as it flows out of the printer? This way a simple PLA printer with white plastic could be used to print full color objects.
