Probably by next month!
NB there are 2 standards of square taper, Euro and Japanese.
It's even worse than that, since many of the non-Shimano Japanese manufacturers actually followed the European standard. Actually, the taper is the same 2 degrees, but the size of the end differs just enough to cause incompatibilities.
