Is it possible to implement Bumps charts using Matlab?

I have 2 data sets of ranked values that I would like to relate to each other, by creating an Oxford Bumps chart similar to the second figure in the link below:

Is anyone aware of a way that such a figure could be created using Matlab? Searching the Matlab documentation for "bumps chart" doesn't appear to yield results. Even if there isn't a specific Bumps chart function, is there a workaround? It looks like there is other software available that can create these figures, but I'd prefer to use Matlab if possible.

At the worst, I can create a 2-valued data set for each group, and just plot those 2 ranks; it won't look as nice as the figure above, but should convey the general idea...

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.
