    I see people bring this up a lot - is this really necessary? How can we tell if our machine needs some of this done?

    No, not so much. I used my old G4 yesterday running 10.1. I've never repaired permissions on that thing nor have I reinstalled the OS since I got it (after upgrading from cheetah) and it still runs as it did new.
