User Modules

I have been building custom User Modules (UM) for 10 years now.   When I first started it required placing the UM folder in the correct directory and ,bamm, you were going.  Then came the “Express” years where you also had to manually edit a channel files.  Now with Designer 5.1 it looks like I have to make a folder for the User Module, a folder for the data sheet, and I have to manually edit about 64 device description files. A list of devices that a UM worked for used to be stored in the UM XML.  Now each device has a list of UMs that will work with it.  Apparently we plan to be making more new devices and less new User Modules. Maybe there is an automated way of doing it that I haven’t been told about.
 
User Modules started out being written by the apps engineers.  As this function moved away from them, the construction process has continued to get more complex.  Used to be I could whip one up in a couple of days.  Not anymore.
 
Is anyone out there making their own UMs for 5.1?  I would be interested in you opinion.
