I was a little wrong, but in essence yes, to an extent. I got the
hyperref option wrong, though (should be [pdfpagelabels] instead of
[plainpages=false]).

If you run the appended minimal document through pdflatex and open the
output in Adobe Reader, the page numbering is shown as it appears in
TeX (i,ii,iii,iv,1,2,3).

Oh, but I get error messages when I try to view the arabic numbered

Anyway, the principle works, so maybe this is something that will also
be able to be used in TeXShop when Mac OS X 10.4 is released. (TeXShop
leverages Mac OS X technologies to display the PDF, so if Mac OS X
doesn't support something, then TeXShop won't either.)

\documentclass{memoir}

\begin{document}
\frontmatter
page i
\newpage page ii
\newpage page iii
\mainmatter
\newpage page 1
\newpage page 2
\newpage page 3
