Is there any way to get a 54mm chain line out of an Alfine 8?

I already have a A8 on a Surly Ogre that has worked well. I'm considering a different frame (Tumbleweed Prospector) that will accept a derailleur drivetrain when running 29x3, or can run 26x4 if you are SS/IGH with a 54mm chain line. That limits the IGH choice to Rohloff.

My interest in 26x4 or fatter rubber is only mild at this point, so it is very difficult for me to justify a $1500 rear hub. Running the frame as a fat singlespeed is far more achievable, but wanted to see if there is a mod or dished cog for the A8 I already have that I haven't found yet.
