What are your thoughts on the Divi builder by Elegant?

My experience with the major page builders (like Divi) has been through clients and customers. They usually say that they were the right tools at the time, but they ended up causing performance issues and lock-in.

Ultimately, I think they're great tools for specific use cases: getting started very quickly, sites with short lifespans, etc. If they're going to be used on a legitimate business site that's going to be around for a while, page builders ought to be vetted and used very thoughtfully.
