I seriously asked myself this question too. But i really wanted one, so im building one. In all honesty i dont think ill use it more than once or twice a month. But when i do i plan to do pizza, lots of meats, large meats, roasting, grilling, BBQ, baking bread, suckling pigs, lamb etc. I LOVE cooking with fire so this was a dream come true to have. I had to have one. Also firing the oven takes about 1 1/2-2 hours to get it up to pizza temp (750-900 F), and it will stay warm for 3 days if insulated well.
