I put one on a BMX when I was a kid, and made a 7speed BMX chopper that worked nicely.
Only generic multispeed bikes use that method, always with generic derailleurs, too. The bike you linked to is a generic as well. Bikes properly designed for derailleurs have the right provisions from the get-go.

One of these will work with proper derailleurs on generic bikes, tho:
