While the 2 week turn around issue still stands, prices for low volume manufacturing have dropped through the floor with companies like OSHPark. $5 per sq inch and you get 3 copies of a full spec 2 layer boards shipped to your door. I have also had boards back in as little as 6 business days, though that's not the norm.
I've done self etched boards, as well as have access to a board router, but the hassle of not having plated vias and holes has pushed me well past the pain threshold. There's certainly still a use for home grown boards and this looks like it takes plenty of pain out, but for personal projects I can wait.
