panasonic [GM1] Electronic Shutter - explain the advantage???

According to 43rumor, the upcoming super tiny Panasonic GM1 will use an electronic shutter.

So what is the big deal about it? I'm assuming it'll be quieter right? The only Electronic Shutter I remember is the old Nikon D50, which employ a hybrid electronic/mechanical shutter allowing the flash sync to go to 1/500s instead of 1/200s. Are there other advantage???
