Yes it's really possible. I attended this year's Photokina last month.
I've seen two Leica's on display fitted with a Contax G-Hologon lens. 
Conversion to Leica M isn't cheap and can even be reversed back to 
Contax G.

A German firm does the conversion for DM 1790,- (German Marks), you'll 
have bring in your own Contax G-Hologon though. It's also possible to 
order the G-Hologon plus the conversion. (In their catalog the G-Hologon 
is listed for DM 4798,-)

Note: Lenses are converted by special order only, no serial production. 
Not to be used with Leica M5 or Leica CL. No TTL exposure measurement 
with an M6. Bear in mind the G-Hologon isn't widely available, you could 
be in for a long wait.
