Are they going to start making vintage fd mount lenses again?

I was wondering it seems that with all of the demand for these vintage lenses due to mirrorless technology manufacturers would start making them again.  At this point the vintage lenses are going for more than the new automatic lenses, especially the wide angle and fisheye.  I think part of the problem is that the new e-mount lenses just don't have the same options, for example I can add focal reducers and shift adapters, tripod mount adapters.  If I got a manual e-mount I would be sort of stuck with that short mount.  I also wouldn't be able to upgrade to full frame later, or change cameras out.  They could even simplify the design and get rid of the silly aperture lock.
