Foveon sensor question?

Do any manufacturers besides Sigma use the Foveon sensor? It seems to be pretty amazing- the images I've seen are incredible. I understand that the Sigma cameras are not the greatest performers, but why aren't other four-thirds manufacturers using this sensor? Imagine taking the best of Leica, Panasonic, Olympus, and Fuji, and a Foveon sensor- isn't cross-compatibility what the four-thirds system is all about?

The only other consumer camera that uses a Foveon sensor is the Polaroid X530. The current generation of SLR Foveon sensors aren't 4/3rds sensors - they have a 1.7x crop factor, limiting the compatibility. Beyond that, a lot of the talk around Foveon's quality is pure hype - even magazines like Pop Photo have dismissed some of its claims and noted that there are instances where a camera like the Nikon D80 performs better in terms of color.
