Yes, this is probably more difficult than the soldering. A  
manufactured PCB might be the only way to go for such small packages.  
Alternatively, a TSSOP/DIP adaptor.

Yes, maybe it would. I'll look into it.

I was only really wanting to suggest that since the 1980's the  
situation has reversed: back then DACs were expensive and S&H muxes  
freely available and cheap - now multiple-channel DACs are cheap, and  
S&H muxes are difficult to find and expensive if you do.
