Either way, if they could get their hands on a working K-lab, that would be your best best for K-14 processing to happen and perhaps a kickstart fund for getting it off the ground.

Whether or not they ever produce a kodachrome like film remains to be seen, but i see them introducing new and exciting films from their archive of forgotten formulas. I would be happy to send my fillm to italy for processing if they ever did reproduce a kodachrome "copy" however.
As a Kickstarter contributor to Ferrania, I'll be more than satisfied if they succeed in overcoming all their problems and create successful E6 films, with possibly supporting processing services. I'm sure it will work out, given time, but, much as I would love to see a Kodachrome copy, I think it would be a big mistake if they tried to diversify into any other films until they have a solid business base.
And, even if anyone did produce a Kodachrome-copy, it can be no more than a copy and is unlikely to match the characteristics of the original product....remembering also that many people alleged that there were visible differences in Kodachrome produced in the various Kodak factories, e.g. USA, France and UK.

Re: People still buying Kodachrome on ebay. Possibly a couple of reasons can be suggested: 1). Nostalgia (that, like other EK memorabilia, the hope that Kodachrome film itself eventually has collectible value); 2). Folks wanting "cheap" film to experiment with; 3). Diehard types still awaiting word from Kittlegraphy; and 4). Folks taking EK's recent announcement that Ektachrome will be returning and that the company was studying the case for Kodachrome (more likely that pigs will fly, however...) as well.

The diehards in your point 3) are also hoping against hope that maybe someone else will process at least a few Kodachromes. Even if the dyes are not stable, getting a roll processed and scanning it would make some of us very happy, so we are buying a few. In my case, I missed one roll intended to be shipped in my last batch sent to Dwayne's and it has been in my freezer ever since next to a few purchased and waiting forlornly for the above.
