Complex forms and differentials

Can Sage handle complex differential forms and the \partial and \bar\partial operators? I tried naively defining the d-bar operator before as (in Latex) \bar d \bar u, but I got an error saying that conjugation wasn't defined for the differential form class. Is there a way of handling this other than defining the real and imaginary parts of all variables and brutally defining the \partial and \bar\partial operators?

To the best of my knowledge those operators are not currently implemented in Sage. The differential forms class is pretty new, and lacks a number of features currently. I know the developers of it had some future plans but I don't know if they included support for complex operators.
