lazyweb LaTeX question (actually, BibTeX)

Does anybody know whether there's a good reason to use apacite for APA style references instead of natbib with apalike which comes with my tetex install?

I'm inclined to use natbib, with apalike just because I won't have to install anything new. and it seems like natbib is a little more popular though perhaps not as strictly coherent to the APA rules.

Anybody worked with this?

Update: This page from Reed suggests that apacite and natbib together is the way to go.
