Has anyone experimented with removing the fixed lens of an EX1? It would be great to be able to put a PL or DSLR mount on the camera to get more wide angle options.

It would be the same effect as if you experimented with replacing one of your own limbs. Not pretty... :)

There are lens adapters that will fit *over* the EX1 lens and give you access to 35mm lenses- Letus, Brevis, etc. But unless you're a mechanical engineer with a fully equipped optical workshop the only effect you'll achieve by forcing off the EX1's lens is a broken camera and a voided warranty.

Quite honestly though- something like a Canon T2i/7D/5D Mark II would be a far more simple and cost-effective route to lens interchangeability.

Not a good idea.
Those who want other lenses should buy an EX3.
To get more wide angle options without a 35 mm adapter, you can buy a wide angle adapter from Sony or Schneider.

The WA (wide adapters) are the only option for the EX1/1r. Here are some examples of what is available from Century (Schneider) Optics:
