Will it be possible to feed in a reference clock to the ADALM-PLUTO?

I'm interested in whether it would be possible to use the ADALM-PLUTO time-of-arrival localization. This requires a very stable clock. I wonder whether it will be possible to feed in an external reference clock? In the revision-B schematics, it looks like there is no connector or jumper to switch from the built-in 40MHz oscillator to an external clock.

 

Also, if I do feed the clock from an external source (even if this involves removing the 40MHz oscillator), how difficult will it be to switch from 40MHz to 10Mhz? I see that the AD9363 does support 10MHz clocks, but will it is reasonably easy to configure the firmware for this clock frequency?
