I'm baffled.  The adapter I have on my 19mm/3.5 goes the other way:
FL lens to LTM camera.  It seems that if I had one of the gizmos you
describe, I could fit the lens with *both* adapters and end up back
where I started, with something that would fit an FL-mount camera.
I have problems imagining the geometry of this...
