I don't post unsubstantiated rumors or speculation here, just facts. The CIPA website in Japan was listing the Canon EOS 40D in it's table of Pictbridge compatible cameras as of yesterday. The listing has now been removed, but I took this screenshot of the page that Google had cached. See http://www.cipa.jp/pictbridge/CertifiedModels/PictBridgeCertifiedModels_E.html#DSC_CANON Speculation on what (or when) it will be is pretty pointless, but there is now some hard evidence that it does exist (or will by the fall?).
