<ion-item-options> activated by long press

Hi All,

I have a list of items, where I use <ion-item-options>. They work perfectly as documented here.

When a user slides the item to the left, the options are exposed.

Question

Is it possible to add that when the user long presses on the item, it also exposes the options?

Thanks

  <ion-list>
    <ion-item-sliding...
        <ion-item...
         .........
        </ion-item>

        <ion-buttons>
          <button light (click)="alert('todo')"><ion-icon class="ion-ios-heart"></ion-icon>Favourite</button>
        </ion-buttons>
    </ion-item-sliding>
  </ion-list>

I also have this question.
