This is a very good point for anything longer than a 3-4 day trip. For local trips I use my JetBoil, but I wouldn't use it for trips more than 3 or 4 days because I'd have to carry a bunch of cartridges. For longer trips, MSR Whisperlite has worked well for me. Although that Svea looks pretty interesting.
