I very quickly came to the same conclusion. For some reason I had been
under the impression that the 75160 and 75161 were legacy and
discontinued, but happily they're still being produced by TI in both
through hole and SMD (SOIC) packages. From DigiKey, they're about US
$2.80 each in small quantities, and as low as US$1.08 in bulk.  The
prototype I built uses the through-hole devices, and they greatly
simplified things from my original kludgy design.

I'm looking forward to seeing where the PET-SD stuff goes!
