I saw on Leica's site that they are showing off a film/digital SLR camera. 10Mpixels ISO starts at 100 goes to 1600. Do you think Panasonic will put out there version of this in the future?

That one is in a different league all together. Cost is $6,200. Don't think pana produces the back on that one, and it seems to have a "real" Leica lens. Could be mistaken - not a lot out there about this one yet.

Panasonic would have to drop a zero on that price tag :?
I was thiking more along the lines of the CCD.

The Leica Digital Back is using a Kodak CCD. This CCD is far too large to be used practically in any of the "ultra zoom" cameras (the lenses would need to be very large and expensive, too -- just as they are with a DSLR for equivalent focal range/lens brightness).

Here is Kodak's page on the CCD:

Here is a white paper on the use of this CCD in the Leica Back:
