Is Taq to be discounted ?

With the recent offer to Human Genome Centers of a half-price
discount on large quantity purchases of AmpliTaq, it may be
time to open up a brief discussion about the enzymes of choice
for mapping and sequencing ... especially since other polymerase
manufacturers are matching (or beating) the AmpliTaq pricing.

So : to at least start on the topic of sequencing :

How many folks out there have tried other enzymes for cycle 
sequencing using ABI 373's ?  Which ones didn't work as well,
which ones worked as well or better, and which one(s) are
you actually using for "production" sequencing purposes ?

[It may help to specify template type, and prep methods .... ]

All responses appreciated !
