P.S. I'm still waiting for somebody to make that DIGITAL-MODUL-R for my Cannon AE-1P! It REALLY shouldn't be that hard. Even if the end result is $6000 USD like the Leica version.

It really is that simple, and that awesome, and that important... and yet still lacking!
If money is no object, I think you could ask an artisan (one of those people making adapter rings or working lenses on your specifications) to convert a Leica back for you.

The basic logic should be entirely contained in the back.

The artisan should take a normal Canon AE-1Program back, a "normal" Leica digital back, strip the electronics from the Leica, and putting it to the Canon. It might be not very hard to do for a specialist.
Some flying wires might take energy from the winder or the artisan might adapt a battery compartment to the back.
The final result should not look very attractive but it might be possible to do it.
