So what will it do for me, and just what is it good at?

So far my experiences have been almost entirely negative (and
indications are that many other evolution developers haven't exactly
enjoyed theirs either).  And in my currently (admittedly) unenlightened
state, I would simply answer as bluntly as I generally tend to do, "make
my life harder, and not a whole bloody lot" to the above question!

It certainly solves problems, but many don't seem to be ones we're after
having solved, or that map well to our application?
