Directory vs Classifieds Plugin


I was wondering if you had a comparison chart or something the like for the Directory and Classifieds plugin.

Directory integrates with the affiliate plugin (great!), Classifieds does not.

Classifieds has an internal messaging system (yeah!), Directory does not.

Both lack the capability to create additional listing packages (oh no!), but after taking a casual look only, they look so similar that one wonders why two different plugins.

(Forgive me if I am wrong about above statements :wink:)

So, a blog post, comparison chart, or outline of development paths and suggested applications would be very useful.

Thank you,
