I've never tried beyond a single element, no. Reinhold would be the person to talk to.

I'm assuming that you want it for the swirlies? If so, most of the other lens design considerations go out the window (i.e. ignore the above book!) so just putting a pair of doublets on a tube and fiddling the spacing ought to give you something workable. You will probably end up with a far-suboptimal design with much more swirliness or other characters/flaws.
