When traveling to Arizona, I make a point of picking up some brush-on lacquer for specific projects. My state is dumbing down both user and end-user of quality products.
WB products are the future, whether you like it or not. I won't get into the enviro-politics of it, but that's where new products are going so you have to learn, adapt, and be willing to try new things. Personally, I haven't found the transition to be too painful and in many ways WB products are far superior. No risk of explosion when you spray them, fast drying and far faster curing compared to OB products, dead clear when you want it, easy to adjust the color with WB dyes when you want color, and more.
