Thermistors as Vectrix Inrush Current Limiter?

Wikipedia has a page on ICLs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inrush_current_limiter

An inrush current limiter is a component used to limit inrush current. Negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors and fixed resistors are often used for this. Less often, other components are also used.

The inrush current limiter is placed in series with the circuit whose inrush current needs to be limited.
