      In a recent discussion 12robots disparaged the cfinvoke tag with words such as:

      "cfinvoke is an evil beast that serves a dark master. It is of occasional use, but in 99 out of 96 cases, it is ugly, ugly, and ugly"

       

      While I rarely use it myself, I can think of one of those occasional uses.  Every once in awhile someone will post a question describing a situation where there hosting provider disallows the cfobject tag and createobject function.  That pretty much leave cfinvoke as the only alternative.
