Big-grip E-PL1 µE-330

Have you explored an E-PL1 derivative design where the battery is in a grip which is thick enough to rotate the battery 90 degrees, but not so thick as to protrude beyond the front of typical pancake lenses? (Something 3 or 4 times as thick as the current E-PL1 grip.) Would that free up space to shift the entire lens/sensor/IBIS assembly over and fit an EVF on the other side? Or, maybe an EVF could fit on the same side as the grip, above the battery---but maybe the battery is too high.

I think a lot of people would like a "big-grip" E-PL1 derivative; I haven't done a mock-up of such a beast though.

On the other hand, a big-grip E-PL1 derivative would be akin to a µFT version of the E-330; which I have mocked-up previously (but needs refinement):
