I definitely agree. And the proliferation of CD-ROM is
going to make SCSI more desirable through the next 3-5 years.
The part could be socketed, though PLCC sockets drive me up
the wall around here with unreliable connections.
There are a number of SCSI controller chips worth looking
at, including the NCR 5380 and derivatives (including the
NatSemi DP8490) and the Western Digital 33c93 and derivatives.
I would tend towards the 5380 type, as they are multiple sourced
(cheap), well-known (Seagate ST-01), and can provide reasonable
performance. PLCC packages are common.
