Carl Zeiss Distagon 2.8/28 T* - MM or C/Y mount Question

I ran across an older Carl Zeiss Distagon 28mm f/2.8 T* lens with the MM mount (or C/Y Contax/Yashica mount). I see that there is a C/Y to M42 adapter, and then there is the M42 to K adapter. Are these adapters stackable, and if they are, will there be registration distance problems thus focusing issues. Or is this a case of just can't get there?

The M42 I am very familiar with. The MM or C/Y I have seen some references, but really never investigated.


Update - I think I found a link showing the mounting solution... (with a bit of surgery)
Update #2 - So is anyone using this lens? Anyone done the conversion?
