Tweaking kernel compile parameters in the middle of the night because you've ran out of sometype of buffer isn't my idea of fun. If you are strapped for cash then I highly recommend it but thats about the only situation I'd recommend it in, you can also gain a number of flexibilities in that you can hack the source code and do alsorts of other interesting stuff.
