Need some info re flash equipment

I am considering the purchase of a flash, primarily for use with my current (and future) Pentax DSLR's, but also want something that can be used with some or all of my film cameras. The product that I have been thinking about is the Metz Mecablitz 45CL-4. I understand that it will require a dedicated module for Pentax DSLR's; will it work with both a K10D and a DS? Also, the info on your web site indicates a manual mode; does this mean that it will operate with older film cameras such as those listed below?

Pentax ZX-M
Pentax Super Program
Pentax Spotmatic
Mamiya 645 1000S
Mamiya RZ67

Thanks for your assistance.

Sorry for the delay, I wanted to verify with Manfrotto (Metz's US distributor) that the Pentax module will work TTL with all legacy film bodies and newer Digital SLR models. Below is everything you will need to purchase.

Metz mecablitz 45CL-4 Digital TTL Handle Mount Flash

Metz SCA 3045 Converter & Extension Cord

Metz SCA 3702 Dedicated Module
will allow SCA 3002 system flashes to be fully compatible with Pentax SLR cameras.
