I learned the same lesson... External components require a LOT more  
work to set up, but give you a lot more flexibility and options for  
scaling.    That said, there just isn't a lot of information out there  
as to people's experiences building these thins.  Which is why I'm  
trying to create a more general framework that others can use.
