Is it possible to use K mount lenses with a 4/3 body?

Some new and upcoming "four turds" cameras are pretty exiting - like Lumix GH-1 with 1080p24 video. I wonder if it is possible to use K mount lenses on those bodies? A brief googling didn't give me the answer. If there are suitable adapters, do they enable AF?

I loaned several K mount lenses to a friend of mine for use on his new G1, so it's definitely possible via adaptors.
You won't get AF (or any automatic functions), and I didn't like the EVF on the thing, but that's personal taste.

OK, thanks. I just realized GH-1 (and G1) are actually micro 4/3, but I suppose that makes no major difference.
