Coupled with the crash-prone core game, it really is a nightmare process most of the time.
I once managed to get most of the great ones working in a reasonably stable fashion, and I actually completed the main quest with them. Oh, there were oddities and quirks - and it was a matter of constantly adjusting throughout - but it did work.
I think that makes it around 1 success out of ~20 attempts to get it stable and playable with the mods I really want.
