Yes, that's exactly why I am reluctant to use special purpose ICs at all. I 
definitely want to keep the number of such IC types to a minimum, so I can 
afford to keep spares. 
I thought the SSM 2024 might be versatile enough to standardize on. It might 
not be the best choice for a certain application, but it seems to be usable in 
a number of applications and it is fairly cheap, considering it has four CCAs.
