I have handbuilt wheels on both my bikes. One has DT Competition and the other has DT Revolution on three of the four sides, DT Competitions on rear drive-side. I commute year-round on both bikes.
Both wheelsets are strong and light, and give a nice tight-feeling yet comfortable ride. I see no reason why most folks shouldn't use double-butted spokes. They're packaged with brass nipples, too, BTW.
