+1 on grinding off the keying.

I see lots of the Allen-key bolts, both seat post binder and stem binder, on some sites but pre-Allen ones seem to be difficult/impossible to find unless eBay ($50 asking price for a bolt with rust on it???) Possibly a ready market for this and other small parts but manufacturers might not be able to charge enough to recoup costs (and I just received last night another one of those $$$$$ Mafac rebuild kits from Compass!) The small bolts with a boss under the 8mm head, used for downtube clamps for shift levers and cable guides, come to mind.
