BQ79718-Q1: Shunt instead of a Busbar

Part Number: BQ79718-Q1
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DRV425-BUSBAR-EVM


I know that the BQ79758/BQ79652 have current sense inputs for a shunt measurement, but our Cells (Supercaps) are connected together with copper rails, which we can use one as a shunt. The BQ79758 is not available, yet.
Are the Busbar ports on the BQ79718/BQ79612 only usable for a Busbar like DRV425-BUSBAR-EVM(external current sense component), or is a direct connection to a shunt instead of a busbar possible, too?
