Unhappy EJ22 w/ 112k has piston slap. How long will it last?

So yeah... I now know for sure that my EJ22 has piston slap. I know that this may be "acceptable" during warmup, but it is getting to the point where it takes a lot of warm-up to go away. Actually I think I can hear it faintly all the time.

So how long can I play this out? I'm not too eager to be swapping engines anytime soon. I know that this is supposed to cause minimal damage to the engine, but I don't think an engine with full blown metal to metal impacts is going to last forever.
