Another great post, Zack!

My last attempt to find a way around this issue is, we teamed up with various 
people to start a drupal hosting provider. That way I can 
a) Focus on development, and leave other stuff to people who are better at 
b) Do long term development. When consulting, I most often need small 
solutions, so for a short time. I have so many large projects that do not get 
the time they deserve/need because the client changed his/her mind during the 
project. A pity.
c) Think bigger. Not only in terms of a small contributed module, or a theme 
function, but in terms of a distro! :)

I thought it could be usefull to share my personal solution for this :)
