I have to admit that, these days, I almost always create a new file, include 
GENERIC, set a new ident, and then just add or trim options and devices as 
needed.  While I probably trim a little less from my kernel than I used to, I 
find my upgrade path is much smoother since I'm just maintaining my local 
variations in their own file.  Typically, I'm just adding a few options and 
devices locally, however, and not making large-scale modifications.  I find 
the include directive to be invaluable though.
