As far as users go, it's split about 50/50 if you are using this thread as a gauge (which is only about 10 people anyway - hardly representative). And I'm willing to bet not all the folks who are voicing opposition fully understand the benefits of a combined build - when confronted with an unqualified choice, it's human nature to go with whatever you're comfortable with and resist change. I do it all the time.
Just a thought, but I think this thread could benefit from a dev's brief summary of the pros/cons from an objective viewpoint. Perhaps different results would be obtained - and probably a more statistically significant number of them.
