Agreed.  As the site administrator and creator, I can create customized views 
into the data easily using PHP pages.  It would take 10 times as long to write 
a custom module to do the same work -- and then I have the overhead of yet 
another module.  Usually I just need to insert 3 to 10 lines of PHP code into 
my page to accomplish what I needed.  Why write an entire module for that?
