Just received notification from Freestyle of shipment for my order of 7X17 FP-4 film. This really suggests that the US distributer had the film all along (hopefully in a cooler ;-). If I had known it was available, I would have started ordering Ilford film last year when I got the camera. I hope this time Simon & Ilford work with their US distributer to make all aware of the ready availability of ULF film. This would, I suspect, encourage more users of film to feel comfortable with standardizing on Ilford film.
