Default Do you run ART? What do you use to mod your phone? Do you miss Xposed?

I, personally, was really excited to be running ART for the speed and battery boost, but have found myself kind of wanting for my good ol' Xposed modules. It'll be a while (probably a while after Lollipop goes gold) before we get ART support from Xposed. Do you guys not run ART at all in the meantime? Do you modify system files yourself instead? Has anyone released standalone mods? Or is the recommended ROM for this Viper?
