If a GF1 is too big and the G11 is not good enough you are pretty much out of luck. The NEX5 with a zoom is harder to fit into a pocket than the GF1 with a pancake.

There are rumors that Nikon is working on an ILC with a sensor that splits the difference bwtween APS-C and compact cameras. But you cannot buy a rumor.

Yes. The s95 is the best camera you can easily fit in your front pocket that's currently available. The image quality will be about the same as the G11, though. But nowadays, that's as good as it gets in a camera that size. Nothing short of micro 4/3rds has substantially better image quality. Bigger cameras like the LX5 have some more features (most importantly better low-light apertures after you start zooming), but not any better resolution and fitting it in your pocket is jeans pocket is way harder - you can wedge it in there, but don't try sitting down that way, lol.
