+1, but I don't think the two need to be mutually exclusive.

At present, Archetypes-based content types cannot be used with a factory (I
tried hard, but there are some acquisition-related/factory related reasons);
I'd like to refactor this, but we can't for Plone 3.0 at least.

Given that Alec & co essentially had a patch which worked, I suggest that we
have a look at it, and include it if possible, and then encourage the use
factories in general. I'd hope we could avoid deprecating it outright until
we can fix up AT to use them, though.
