But will it AF fine tune the old MF lenses ala the 1.7x?

Member Pentaxoe just posted a photo of the HD DA 1.4X AW AF Rear Convertor in Pentax Forums SLR Lens forum. The thread is called Teleconverters - again! (Pentax Rear Converter A 2X-S on DA* 200mm f/2.8)) and is not about the new TC, it's about the old A 2X-S.

Quoted from the thread: "Talked to a Pentax source these days. Looks like a (the) "HD DA 1.4x AW AF Rear Converter" is on it's way. It seems to be more than a rumor. He showed me a picture of the new converter. It has the new HD design. I have no further specs or release date though."

This looks a lot like my Tamron 1.4x conv...    and it has all the contacts and screw drive, but does not fine AF like the Pentax 1.7 does...   
Anyone know if this one will?    
What is it about the Pentax 1.7 that allows it to AF fine tune the old MF lenses?
