questions re M42 to K adapter

I'll be grateful for answers to these questions:

Do you expect to be able to sell Pentax-supplied M42 to K adapters, or have they been permanently discontinued?

If you expect to be able to sell Pentax-supplied adapters, do you have an approximate date when that is likely to occur?

Regarding the M42 to K adapter B&H is selling:

1. Is this adapter, which I think is labeled General, the Bower adapter with which some people have reported problems such as the adapter being difficult or impossible to remove and/or a screw coming out, and metal finding its way into the camera?

2. Does the adapter B&H is selling allow the camera to focus to infinity?

3. Does the adapter B&H is selling come with a tool for removal of the adapter, or does the owner merely need to use a ballpoint pen tip as is the case with the original Pentax adapter?

4. Does the adapter B&H is selling come with instructions?

Thanks very much!
