I have to say that the adaptations are somewhat clunky. The new editions of UT & BIO have subtle differences (many of them pointed out in those two threads). Going all the way to UT/BIO makes it feel not quite THS, but sticking to the THS way is not always supported without fiddling in 4e. Having to switch between three books when looking up a single item can be quite inconvenient too.
