Focusing screen

During introduction of the K1 this was a topic, does it have (user) interchangeable screens or not. A solution would be quite useful especially for manual long tele lenses. LIve view with focus peaking is not really a solution. I used Katzeye on my K5 & K3. Did anyone come up with a solution. With Katzeye out of business, any solution appears to be gone. Looks like there is no market for interchangeable screens anymore.
