[OS X TeX] KOMA vs. memoir vs. ConTeXt vs. …

Hi everybody,
on this list several class files like, e.g., KOMA script or memoir 
class (or ConTeXt as an alternative to LaTeX) have been mentioned for 
the purpose of book-setting. Since I plan to do a larger book project 
in LaTeX (and/or relatives), I'm interested in the pros and cons of 
these packages. Or to put it differently: What are your experiences 
with these packages? Which one would you recommend for which purpose, 
and why (e.g. ease of use; compatibility with other style files, e.g., 
ps-tricks compatibility; large feature sets etc. pp.)? For example, I 
got the first impression that KOMA script is probably *the* tool for 
writing letters, but that the memoir class may provide a bit more 
flexibility, if you want to set a book (but I may be completely wrong).
Thanks for sharing your KOMA-/memoir-/ConTeXt-/…experiences,
