Understood.  Both of those are good points.  I was just wondering if
people thought the kind of customization of personal units which goes on
is worth the cost, not whether or not it had value at all. Obviously it
does have value, both to the people who do it and (probably) the people
who occupy it later.

But is it *worth* it?  I think your answer was "yes," Roger, and thanks
for that.
