"easy to source" and "known to be in production" are very much a mixed 
bag lately.  after the economic slow down, many plants in china and 
other locales let large numbers of workers go.  if you can find a 
stocking supplier with parts in hand, you are good to go.  but beyond 
that you are likely to find trouble.   i have been told that getting 
factories to ramp up production has been difficult.  parts in demand by 
big buyers naturally get preference, and the envelope of parts used by 
consumer goods is but a fraction of all parts offered.
