Actually, I had great results from 'old and outdated' Ilfochrome classic. I
made great (award winning) prints on some 1956 Ilfochrome in 1998.
[Pictures of Ansel Adams old S.F. neighborhood, actually :)]

For Alt. use. It of my limited understanding that after fixing, drying, the
paper can be coated with Pt/Pm or anything and printed upon, as fresh.
