2D Axisymmetric non-uniform loading

I'm wondering why there is no option to use non-uniform forces/pressures in 2D axisymmetric.  I understand they could only be in one direction (along axis of symmetry), but it would be hugely helpful for hydrostatic loading cases (cylindrical tanks)...  Is there a work-around for this?  I've tried a 1-deg solid revolution, but the circular symmetry fixture doesn't seem to apply properly (pulls away from the very center along rotation axis, and doesn't seem to capture hoop stress correctly).
