I hate to tell you this (not really): Novoflex recently announced a 
Leica->EOS non-optics adaptor....;-))
FWIW, a Nikon->EOS non-optics adaptors has been around longer, but 
now also from Novoflex and Zoerkendoerfer (both German brands).
Since both adaptors are very thin *and* accommodate a release 
mechanism, they are not cheap, $200.
If one can live with a screw instead of a fast release, it can be 
done for less by other manufacturers, but not by much.
