Pretty much the same here, I have the packages I need installed, and  
a backup of the old i-Installer. The only time I've needed to use it  
is when I got a MacBook Pro earlier this year. I have gotten so  
spoiled on having pretty much everything I need, I don't know what I  
would do if it weren't there in the future.
