Personally, I support the use of custom-built packages, both in commercial and personal contexts. But if

This is very brief because I am about to go and watch Jonathan Creek. But for about a week I have been busy working on migrating my blog to WordPress and I have literally just finished and put the new blog live. Hurrah!
