So, with my beloved D70s going away to Ritz for dust removal (embedded on the sensor), and the prospect of being SLR-less for about four weeks, I've decided getting a D40 or used D50 for a backup body would be a good idea. Now, I don't need the extra pixels of the D40x, so the base would be fine. Plus, with my Nikkor lenses, the 18-55 could also see use on my D70s when I want the added features of the larger model without the added weight of the 18-70. Anyway, I guess I just need to find a used D50 in good shape, or just get the D40 new. At only $600, that kit is quite a steal!
