Not all are that difficult - BG Micro ( ), for
example, has a fairly decent selection of WD floppy controller chips.

While on the topic of replacing "classic" VLSI chips, are there any
FPGA's still available in 40-pin packages anymore? I've seen PGA-to-DIP
adapters, but those are a bit clunky (and overkill!)
