Not sure if I have the right chip: MC68SZ328: DragonBall™ Super VZ Integrated Processor is listed as "No longer recommended for new designs" and is at the archive section of Freescale's website.

There is one big danger using a chip that no one else uses. The bean counters at the Freescale might decided to cut their loses and discontinue a line when the economy is bad or they don't meet their quarterly earnings. Or that they put more priorities on making other chips, so they wait a long time to bake each batch (i.e. long lead time).
