I tend to agree. I used to experiment with rolling my own and never really 
experienced any noticeable benefit. Of course, if there is some option you 
really need, that is disabled in the FC version then yes, but I bet these are 
rather esoteric cases.

Another problem you should bear in mind if you do this, is you cannot then use 
any of the fedora or third party kernel module packages that are around in 
the various repos, as of course none of these where compiled against your 
kernel.... 

In practice I don't think its really much use or there is any benefit for the 
average user to do this.
