I also vote for element14/canada.newark.com. I normally hate UPS, but
newark has a deal with their pre-brokered service, and its $8
overnight to Canada (no hidden fees).
The only 1-wire device I've dealt with (on a raspi) was the ds1307
realtime clock. It was simple to set up, since Pi kernel sources has
both ds1307 rtc and i2c drivers.
