Service owner's question CAS or Shibboleth

My very simplistic decision tree goes:

Do they support InCommon / eduGAIN?

Yes - use InCommon
No - use CAS

We're running the actual CAS IdP, and we are way more comfortable 
configuring services in that manually for either the CAS or SAML 
protocols than in the Shibboleth IdP. So we use that when we don't have 
the extreme ease of use with InCommon.
