I often run GENERIC kernels. In fact, the only reason I'm not running it on
the machine I'm on now is because for some reason one of the devices I wanted
was commented out (spdmem). Given what I need the machine to do, GENERIC works
fine, and I'd rather spend my time on more useful things (like spouting random
bs on mailing lists :) )

I definitely agree that this is important criteria to keep in mind. It's
easy to get distracted by things that look cool, even if they don't work.
I know I've gone down that path many times.
