I wondereded the same thing about the original message but didn't get 
around to responding.  Here in Minneapolis a high percentage of the older
housing stock has stucco.  But I do recall talking to a friend who's
in the non-profit housing bsns who said they avoid stucco because it
is relatively expensive compared to Aluminum siding because of the high
labor cost (fairly specialized labor I think).
