Is a bent helix possible?

I tried to create a helix on an shape made from a swept circle (the bent orange object), and also a partially revolved circle (the green object), but neither worked.  Is a bent helix possible?

    @jakeramsley Don't think that's something that I'd wish to dive into, I don't suppose there's any plans on doing this directly.

    Ok, thank you for the info.  I will keep a swept object (like the orange shape) in my design for now as a representation/place holder.
