I was reading the "A few words from Leica" interview about Leica & Pansonic (like you do when theres bo-diddly to do) when I came across this little tid bit towards the end about the future Lumix's - I'm not sure how old this interview is so it could be complelty out of date :

"What kind of digital camera do you envision creating in the future?
Panasonic develops unique tele-zoom lenses, but Leica is interested in wide-angle lenses as well.

Do you mean as a Leica brand product?
No. I mean Leica lenses for the LUMIX. We think it would be a good idea to use wide-angle lenses on future LUMIX models."

Here's the link

Yeah, read that a while back. There's very little "glitz" factor to WA lens capabilites, as opposed to "12X Optical Zoom!". Kinda like the megapixel race. 'doubt it will happen for the consumer camera lines. Probably the DSLR Pana intends to make.
