Coupon/promo codes aren't in active development but are on our future roadmap.
We weren't planning on introducing coupon code capabilities directly in the PayPal Add-On. Because we also have an Authorize.Net Add-On actively being used in alpha testing and getting set to be released as a beta and we will be introducing additional payment gateway add-ons... building it into the payment add-on itself is not ideal.
What we planned on doing is introducing a coupon specific add-on that will work with all of the payment gateway add-ons. However it probably won't be until sometime later in 2012, most likely the spring or summer, before we could devote the development resources necessary to this project.
So if you have the functionality and wanted to package it up and make it available to users on WordPress.org, go for it.
