SD1 lens mount choice

Does anyone have a read on why Sigma would use its own proprietary lens mount? It seems their body would gain so much more acceptance if they offered Canon Nikon mount versions. They would sell more bodies, and I don't think they would lose money with their lens sales, since people would be just as likely to purchase their lenses... Hmm, well, maybe not, since folks might just as well use the lenses they already have -- I think I just answered my own question.

Anyway, I might be tempted to buy one if it came with a Nikon mount. As it is, getting into a niche system isn't practical.
