Yes, VSI* has been implemented in gdal 1.8.0, you should use the
latest stable 1.8.1.
You have this in debian experimental, but I don't use debian so can't
comment on how "experimental" the debian gdal 1.8 builds are.
You can also build gdal yourself from source.
Provided you upgrade to 1.8.1, you should be able to reproduce 
using the vsimem interface.
