Gl2 Matte Box options

I am very close to purchasing a GL2 camera. I am wondering if there are some decent options for mounting a matte box on the GL2? I remember seeing something on ZGC's site. Anyone have recomendations on this?

I bought the Lee filter Holder-compendium shade combo. Its the one for still photography, rather than the video one....difference is that it is square, rather than rectangular...but it's a lot cheaper and deeper. Works fine. Only downfall is with the gl2, using longer Grad filters is a problem, as the microphone blocks vertical travel of the filter...I'm debating rather to cut down the very expensive grads I just bought. (the video version wouldn't be any different in this respect...nor would any other matte box when used with the gl2).
