Atmel availability has looked pretty reasonable for the last 5 years or
so - IIRC, they opened a new fab in 1999 or 2000 that improved things a
lot, and later they bought/merged with Temic and might have acquired
some more production capability.  (Just before the bubble burst.  a bit
sad.)   The seminar included a list of their current facilities; it
lists 6 fabs in 5 countries. including one apparently dedicated to
CCDs.)
I might still think twice for very high volumes, though.  interesting
the way a reputation lingers ....
Digikey has claimed continuous stock of most of the major parts (every
time I've looked, anyway), and they've show up at a bunch of other
dealers, and on eBay  (I gather that the 2313 is used in some sort of
cable decoder thing. Lots of people selling 2313s on eBay.  Sigh.)
