I have seen tutorials around the web to do it with 11.04 if you downloaded GNOME shell from the PPA, but I can't compile it because it gives me errors. I can't use a DEB package that is available for users like me that can't compile from git. I'm guessing it is because I've installed GNOME Shell from the Ubuntu Software Center after installing 11.10.
