New bulbs -WAS: what do you do with incandescent lightbulbs?

I was recently told by my electrician that the "regular" 4 & 8' style
flourescent bulb were being fazed out. Specifically, they are being replaced
by lower-energy use, smaller diameter bulbs. This will mean either stocking
up ahead of time with lots of the "regular" flourescents or coverting all
your fixtures to the new smaller ones. Has anyone else heard about this?

I neglected to mention that this question doesn't start and end with
CFL-replaced incandescents.  There are BILLIONS of incandescent bulbs
out there, all of which with a rather short life span.  Any solution
that can be found for replaced incandescents should also be able to be
used by bulbs that are simply at the end of their filament's life.
