at some point this will stop because Ricoh won't give us another GR in 2014

Well,I am not sure. you may not get another GR but I am pretty confident that Ricoh will have a compact with an APS sensor on the market next year ( most likely a GX with a short zoom)

make sense. A 20-50mm or maybe even somewhat wider if possible?

if you are talking in 35mm equivalent, 20mm is TOO wide a focal length to have a zoom that can be small enough  or bright enough or good enough ( if not all of them at the same time)

it is difficult enough to start at 24mm FOV and keep reasonable aperture and/or decent quality towards normal range

personally my vote would go for a  APS GR with a 2/40mm FOV ( in 35mm equivalents) a 24MP MP count  and the latest EVF from EPSON

I bet that would sell in larger numbers than the current GR
