The Leica M (1954) mount is older and still in use too. But it remains to be seen what Leica will do if they ever support autofocus
Nothing. By that time one will use wireless lens-body communication and motors and batteries so small that the lens doesn't need an external power source either

Good one

Seriously though, adding some electrical contacts didn't kill the F or K mounts. So, should be fine with M too.

Actually, I am wondering if anybody still out for a new mirrorless mount will do exactly this (i.e., mechanically an M mount, but with electrical contacts added)

Maybe something along the lines of Contax AX and contrast detect?
