They actually do for some things, they are just normal DIP parts with the leads bent and trimmed.They should make a set of 0.1" leaded SMD devices for the lazy in us. Stick on any protoboard and solder, only no holes to deal with.
I was thinking of resistors, caps, and diodes that had 0.2" centers for the pad edges and such. Like a macro version of the current SMD, transistors with 3 gull wing leads on 0.1" centers, etc. I've bent DIPs to look like your link above, and it does make for a neat building solution on a board, and some SMD devices are large enough, though SOT-23 transistors fall just a bit short.They actually do for some things, they are just normal DIP parts with the leads bent and trimmed.
