I would not worry very much about batteries not being avalible unless i was an off brand, my 15 year old dewalt still has batteries avalible for it, I've also had batteries rebuilt with new I would not recommend dewalt, or anything else made by Black & Decker as their quality dropped a great deal once they started making stuff in mexico and got worse when they moved to china, but they have their name to sell their product, but Metabo seems to be a good brand so I would trust that their compact driver would work well for your needs, otherwise I've been impressed with the driver that Makita or Bacsh make, and they are used by people I know who build cabenents and use them every day.
If you plan to use it much I would get one of the better brands light weight drills and use it on the lower speed as a screw driver, you might also look at the capasitor charged cordless screw driver, as it doesn't use batteries, and if it's super rare that you need it look at the spiral push screw drivers.
