Focus Reducer K to m43 - with aperture control?

I am glad to see Roxen and others have focal reducers available for K mount to m43 - but unlike in the passive adapters - I'm having a lot of problems locating one with aperture control. I don't need calibrated stops - just the ability to open and close the aperture like the DA style K to m43 passive adapters offer.

Has anyone seen one out there?

As far as I know the only AF adapter for m43 is the canon EF one. Also as far as I know the only way to control in camera aperture is via electronic aperture control OR a mechanical aperture linkage. I'm not aware of any adapter that has mechanical aperture linkage that have any electronics, just the passive mechanical jobs.
