68HC11 parts are often on allocation since they are so widely used in
the automotive industry.  This really means nothing to the hobbyist
since hobbyists don't buy them directly from Moto anyway. The 68HC11
is readily available locally from Tannner and B.G. Micro.  I bought 
two from Tanner last week $6.95 each.  Also Beall and Glenn (1-800-874-4797)
has them for about $3 each.
