You can skid a coaster wheel with a lot less effort than it takes to lock up a fixed, since your forward momentum isn't pushing back at you.
OP: pretty much all new SS coaster hubs available in the US are the same design. Get a Shimano E-110. There's two versions, the only difference is one has extra large holes for thick ass spokes.
edit: if it takes a dump in 6 months you can replace everything inside the hub shell for about $12. Takes 10 minutes, tops.
