Bikes: highly modified specialized crossroads and GT hybrid (really a [formerly] 12-speed bmx cruiser, made before 'hybrid' took on its current meaning), as yet unmodified redline 925, couple of other projects

Good luck finding the levers, the folks who managed to get a pair before they went out of production aren't going to give them up anytime soon - unless you got really lucky, I suspect you'd spend well over $200 for the levers along. I almost think it would be easier in some ways to make your own.
Also, hydraulic rim brakes are only marginally more powerful and controllable than V's - and also heavier - speaking from experience. They are 100% more awesome, I admit, but I would just get XTR V's and spend the money I saved on other parts.
