Re: OM type split focus screen for E-510 and legacy lenses?

Would this replacement screen work?
How would it affect auto focus with the standard digital lenses and would I still see the three illuminating spot focus points in the viewfinder once altered to the OM screen?
What other repercussions???

Looks like a wonderful enhancement if it worked for both OM and E lenses!?

I don't have any experience of these but I'm sure some members here have...
