I've asked about those and have no sources of such.  They do have to 
work thru ballasts and deal with starter issues that are no longer 
relevant, unless you remove and rewire the ballasts / starters out of 
the old fixtures.

The things I've seen are the same form factor as a 4' dual tube dual 40 
watt fixture with 110 in and light out.  Pull and toss an old dual tube 
fixture and replace with new LED.  But I've not seen the tube solution.  
I've got a couple of spots the tube thing would be desirable, but no 
source of such.  If you do have a source I'd be interested.
