Sure is ;-) Disclaimer: not to deeply tested yet though.
Short procedure example to use it could look somewhat like:
# modprobe nbd
# export PBS_PASSWORD='12345supersecure!!!'
# export PBS_FINGERPRINT=00:b4:b5:50...
(above could be also passed directly as option, but well)
# proxmox-backup-client list --repository root at email@example.com:datastore
# qemu-nbd --connect=/dev/nbd0 -f raw -r pbs:repository=root at firstname.lastname@example.org:datastore,snapshot=vm/108/2020-07-14T09:03:47Z,archive=drive-scsi0.img.fidx
# lsblk /dev/nbd0
# mkdir /mnt/test
# mount /dev/nbd0 /mnt/test
