This statement is a illustration of a sad trend in the contemporary bike market - people forget that wheels do not have to be purchased pre built! 650B rims are available with 36 holes (I actually had trouble finding 32 hole rims the last time I was looking), and your current hubs can easily be laced into said rims... unless you have some weird hub that uses straight pull or proprietary spokes, but then a nice shimano Deore or Tiagra hub is $30.
