Pretty much this. My game rules are "Anything - first or third party - on PFSRD is fair game. (Mythic only if I'm actually running a mythic game, obviously.) Further 3rd-party stuff if you can get me a copy and I approve it. 3.5 stuff allowed in most games if I have a copy of it (which I have a pretty extensive 3.5 library), if it needs upgrading/converting to fit into PF's system we'll talk. Anything the players use is fair game for the GM." I love having lots of options and am always eager for more.
Ended up reading through a collection of silly quotes and funny one-liners my gaming group occasionally saves. This one is particularly relevant to Paizo:
Man I couldn't even pick, there are too many people here who would be awesome to have in game.
I am going to say though that if I could have a sit-down-and-brainstorm session with Mikaze, Ambrosia Slaad, Mike Welham/Taig/Rawr, DM Dudemeister, and Icyshadow, we could cook up some crazy worldbuilding.
Probably for a while at least, unless they happen to get dropped off in places that have portals from one to the other.
Once they become whatever outsider they're destined to become they're usually capable of traveling to other planes; however at that point it becomes a question of how much of their mortal lives they remember, and thus whether or not they know/care about their prior relationships. Some settings have them remember nothing, others only vague thoughts and images, and others allow them to remember everything or nearly everything.

It is however an unfortunate but necessary truth that for every person who wants pretty much anything changed one way, there's at least one person who wants to change it in the same amount but the complete opposite direction, at least one person who wants to maintain the status quo ("It's okay how it is, don't change it!"), and at least one person who wants to scrap the entire thing and do something completely different.
It is, unfortunately, impossible to please everyone, and thus only natural that Paizo strives - and perhaps struggles - to find the middle ground that appeals to most, and leaves it up to individuals and groups to adjust from there to the format that suits their play style more. In the end, it may be up to those who don't fit into that middle ground and enjoy or desire more extreme imbalances between pure combat and pure roleplay to accept that they're too far outside the mean.

I like having a CRB that's a strong baseline that doesn't need additional products.
Unfortunately we don't have that, and barring Pathfinder Unchained, there doesn't seem any interest in redoing it. So we're stuck with the Core including Wizard, Cleric, and Druid... and Monk, Rogue, and Fighter. And the stuff in between.

That was how I was before I had to be up for 8 AM jobs. Back when I either wasn't working or was working second-shift, I'd crash around 2-4 AM and sleep til 10 or 11. That seems to be my natural sleep cycle; pushing it back to midnight is about the earliest I seem to be able to manage.
Oh jeez. This is gonna take forever.
First off, thanks to those who mentioned me =) Glad I've got some admirers out there. I'll get back to posting up my homebrew stuff when I'm not in Overtime Hell!
Here goes nothing. My shoutout list, in the order I find them:
EVERYBODY IN FAWTL. There's just too dang many of us to list individually. SO as a result there may be some doubling, if you're a FAWTLfolk and still get listed below. Enjoy it.
Paizonians, obviously. Again, listed as a group.
Turin the Mad
Lamontius (FOR THE LULZ)
Tiny Coffee Golem
Conman the Bardbarian
Eben the Quiet
Adam B. 135
Kydeem de Morcaine
And Many, Many, Many more. All that's just from going back 10 pages in the 450 worth of favorites I have.
"OH MAH GOODSH AND SHERVISHES!!"
Given the vast amount of homebrew races in my group's setting, we long ago just threw the doors open and made any race's FC bonus available to any other race (unless there's some physical limitation as to why they couldn't take it - something based on the race's anatomy. And even then, it'd still be open to other races who had the same/a similar anatomical feature).
