manufacturer from making an adaptor to connect "regular" (as opposed
to 4/3) lenses to a G1 body?

None, in fact the consortium expects it to happen. If history is any guide, Fotodiox will have an almost full range, several Chinese will be on sale at eBay, and the Russians will make a Dandelion chip for the Olympus models.

Only these adaptors are usually for manual lenses only.

I understand that things like image
stabilization or stopped-down previews may not fully be compatible,

Olympus does support image stabilisation for legacy lenses in their Four Thirds bodies.
