I'm curious, other than clearing residuals from previous builds, what is the point of wiping the contents of /system during the install of this rom? I can appreciate the necessity of doing this between various roms, but it's difficult to restore all of the minor changes and system apps (particularly blacked out and themed ones), not to mention losing data on these apps.
@woody or davros... Is there any point where this rom will no longer wipe /system during install, so that it can be installed over previous builds?
@others or all... How does everybody deal with this process without losing ringtones & sounds, animation, hosts file, etc. and the settings that go along with them, such as custom tones associated with contacts and various options? Also the difficulty of restoring some blacked out apps (not all for me) and other themed apps (BnB for me), without losing data?
I don't change much/have custom ringtones per contact etc.
I flash a few ROMs in a weekend and only change a few things, not hosts file or anything that would cause too much annoyance.
I understand where you are coming from, and I used to have TiBu and all of that but even that became too tedious for me.
I've gone very simple, so you won't hear a complaint from me.

power widget to be able to have more than 6 toggles and possibly adding the play,back,forward controls for music.
i keep my phone in my pocket and it always seems to slide open and i sometimes keep the lockscreen off and it has called random people at times or opened random apps. so i was thinking possibly adding a setting to the phone so that opening the sliding keyboard does not turn the screen on?

init.d support would be great.
Also, contacts preferences so you can hide the icon and add in the call button next to each contact would be great!!!
