Why no 40mm pancake (or similar)?

Yes, obviously, else I would not post this.

I own the 45mm and for my travel-light kit I consider it to be too long (not too heavy, as it is a lightweight lens), because I want to store the camera as a flat package (in a pocket). IMO, that is the whole point of creating pancake lenses.

My 45mm is part of my E-M5 kit, and I sometimes add it to the GM1-kit, but knowing that it is perfectly possible to create a HQ 40mm pancake, I would rather have a lens fit for that purpose.
