    The one shortcoming of Android's automatic task-killing capability is it has no awareness of the power drain of a program. I use a task killer to completely shut down programs that draw a lot of power while running in the background. The Android OS might take a long time (or never) to shut them down depending on available program memory.

    Agreed. That's why I treat apps on an individual basis. I mostly remove apps that don't play nicely. But I understand that's not always possible. :-)

    True. But some of the more sophisticated task managers have some decent customization to let you quickly kill the 'bad' apps and let Android handle the 'polite' ones.
