Functionally the K-30 is pretty good. It beats my K-50 in that it has a battery grip option which really kind of ticks me off that Pentax removed that feature. One of those things you realize after you buy something. But yeah the styling is kind of odd on the K-30. I second the optical viewfinder. I'll never buy an electronic viewfinder camera. In a perfect world they'd launch more WR primes alongside the full frame body.
There is a battery grip option for the k-30???????

Well you know how some camera makers (SONY) get sneeky and change the mount. Though that being said,, it would be nice to have access to some of the CZ lenses
You do have access! All you need is $6000. You can get a 135/1.8, an 85/1.4, and an Alpha body.

More friendly exposure mode with K- and M-series manual lenses.

Instead of a box, it should come in the hands of a sexy Pentax lady, that just got caught in the rain and is soaking wet (even though the camera is fine, if you still happen to care)

Basically a D4 that says Pentax on it
Ouch, but unfortunately your not far off the mark, the Nikon is an impressive piece of kit.

although we will never get something like this: I want a development kit, or an open platform to program my own filters, profiles, functions (in-camera-one-click-focus-stacking, dof stacking/bracketging etc.), and most importantly: my own autofocus algorithm (I believe I can do better than Pentax/Ricoh...)

So generally people just want a D4... Why not just get a D4 then? Don't people who would be happy with a D4 already own a D4 then? I don't get it.

This may sound strange, but I just can't seem get the Pentax lenses to fit on it properly.

Fuji-style hybrid VF. (but with a mirror/pentaprism setup instead of see-through).

As for the SR, it could probably be made to save the information on how much it shook and crop appropriately. With adjustable threshold values.

EDIT: Oh, just one thing. Sorry. Well, the second line is just a discussion of previous entries.
