[Bf-cycles] object motion blur

Have you tried the old trick to do that with compositing :
render the elements you want for the "special" motion blur in a passe, 
then in compositing mix this passe with itself as a frame sequence but 
with 1 or more frames delay.
you need to start your render at -3 if you want a 3 frames delay for 
this trick is aged as tron... and you'll have a better control on the 
"trace" aspect of the "blur" like in akira ...
you can add also blur/noise effects to reduce "motion blur steps" and 
finaly it will be more quick to calculate than a real 3d motion blur.
I hope it can help you...
