Minolta MC/MD -> K Mount Adapter?

Long Shot question (I think I know the answer).

A friend was impressed by my K10D, and is considering purchasing a tag-end K10 or a K20 as prices drop a bit - BUT - he has a bag full of Minolta manual lenses. That doesn't affect his choice of DSLR brand since they will only work with older film cameras, now but the expense of converting to a digital body AND lenses is holding him back from going digital at all.

Is there such a thing as a ring adapter to mount Minolta manual MC/MD (pre-Maxxum) lenses on a K-Mount body?

My friend would even consider a negative-lens converter, and losing a stop or two, in order to achieve infinity focus.
