Made all the more agonizing when you arrive in NY and customs express
interest in your decission to stop over south of the border for a
couple of hours.

As others have said -- agony's a nice idea, but the real value gets
added when you can weight the elements according to your personal
preferences (and the site can then capture how people choose to weight
various inconveniences in order to (i) improve their own algorithms,
and (ii) sell on to other interested parties).
