One thing i havent seen adressed in this thread yet are the deficiencies inherent in a drum setup - mainly poor performance due to the inability to dissapate heat. In a competition environment (even in a panic stop) you will quickly overheat the drum brakes and they will prove ineffective to help slow the car at all. In a car that never sees any type of competition the disc/drum combination is adequate 99% of the time. a car that ever ses elevated brake temperatures will find little or no use of drum brakes.

Even if they are engaging earlier than tehy should, or doing less work than they should, I still prefer some braking power to none...
