Default inletOutlet BC in rotating reference frame

Hello all,

So I'm interested in using an inletOutlet BC for an SRF case. The issue of course is that the inletvalue is defined for a stationary frame, and in my case my boundary is rotating, so I need an inlet value that rotates with my boundary. Ideally I want a BC that switches between zeroGradient and SRFvelocity instead of fixedValue. Has anyone made this? I'm starting to patch a new BC together now but if someone else has something that works it would save me a bit of work.
