and other left/right ergonomic problems, we'd have to completely rethink the design of the camera body.

Think a vertical body sitting on a pistol grip.  The VF would be centered, your nose would rest on either side of the body, controls would be on the handle and mirrored for right or left handed shooting.  Battery would fit in the handle and the extra height above the lens would allow for better position of flash.

Drawbacks: camera would not be as compact as current cameras, and would be shunned by people who thought it didn't look like a camera.

Such a handle would place the center of gravity of the body much lower and the body would be much more prone to handshaking. Any slight movement of the hand would be magnified way more than with actual design.
