I"ve probably got more 68 pin PLCCs than anything else; I've got various
ICs in 84 pin PLCC, including a some CPLDs and CPUs (e.g., 80C188EB).
The convenient part is that sockets are available to provide a
convenient 0.010" pin spacing by translating one row of pins to two and
removal/insertion is simple.   Probing for signals is likewise
straightforward.  After that you have to go to QFP/BGA (not terribly
socket-able) or PGA.  High pin-count packages are pretty large, however.
