Default Rear Disc brake conversion

Does anyone know if it'* possible to use rear disc brakes from a newer Bonnie to the older ones? Could you swap out the rear hubs or are they too different?

From what I understand it is not an easy thing to do. There are other factors as well such as the master cylinder is setup for rear drums and not discs. I believe disc brakes take more fluid to move than the drums. If you habe the time and money it would be a nice thing to have. I wouldn't expect an easy swap though.

I don't think the hubs are a direct bolt-up either.
