The feature I've used the most is the ability to call a usertag to figure out all the business logic and return the amount to charge. Once I realized I could do that instead of learning all the other options it felt like the easiest way to do it. It allows me to put my logic in a Perl module and makes it a lot easier to maintain. I'd be quite sad if that went away. :)
