I think most of us would be happy with one we just don't have to worry about crapping out.

From what I am reading, the reason the turbo craps out is because it's Siamese design double empeller intake side is naturally out of balance with exhaust side causing premature bearing wear. Ford's unsuccessful answer was to hyper balance the turning parts. Didn't work...
So what do you do?
I would have expected a new turbo for 13', but Ford is known to stick with a known bad design (6.0L) for an extra year if need be.

You 6.7L guys are in a "no way out" situation here. If you buy a new turbo, you are instantly out of warranty.
If that aftermarket turbo makes more boost, you lose an engine due to strategically under engineered rods. You KNOW Ford won't call a recall when they do solve the problem, and you know you will still be stuck.

and add one more to the waiting list

Sadly with the EPA doing their thing, I suspect it's going to be a very long wait.
