I still think this is an unfair characterization. You can do amazing 
things with Drupal without hacking the core, you just have to know 
exactly how to do it sometimes. As I said, I have several installations 
without core hacking involved. There are some special needs, right now, 
that might still involve a little core hacking here and there but a lot 
of these hacks that people do are just as likely to be unnecessary.

And characterizing Drupal as requiring core hacking because you have 
some special needs is unfair to the entire community who CAN make Drupal 
useful without hacking the core.
