You certainly can get them. I have some in my junk box and they're listed
in the Farnell catalogue over here ( Farnell,
incidentally, have outlets in the US.

Depending on exactly what you want to do there are various options. Tyco
make a "subminature washable PCB mounting" SPDT switch with pins on a 0.1"
pitch which are side-stackable (part number SE1DGPCFN). EAO make one
that's explicitly listed as stackable, 0.1" pitch, SPDT is part no
09-03290-01. ERG make SPDT (and others) as part of their 014 DIL switch
series (the ones with colour-coded sliders), SDC1014, SDC2014 and SDC4014
are 1, 2, and 4-section respectively. They also do a recessed SPDT (SCD1
023 to SCD5 023 for 2/4/6/8 pole), slide switches in similar style which
are 1-pole/8-way, 2-pole/4-way, and 4-pole/2-way (DS16C18, DS16C24,
DS16C42). Enough?
