Active and future availability of thru-hole parts.

I have a number of products/gadgets that I manufacture that are based on the NXP 8051 FA/RC 8 bit parts. They are manufactured in house using thru-hole methods. NXP just EOL'd a bunch of stuff and I seem to be forced to re-design several of these. Since I have reasonably modern, and reasonably well supported development tools for the Freescale stuff ("reasonably" can be debated in another thread) Since I don't want to be in this predicament in the near to medium future, what are the predicted futures for the HC08JK/JL parts? Does anyone have any suggestions other than these parts? I am replacing 40 pin DIP and 44 pin PLCC parts. My other options are the PIC's I think, and/or Atmel/Arduino. Thanks! Bob
