This might be a little off topic as far as "inexpensive" solutions go but I have done a little mixing of systems with some good luck. I have the Strobist type setup as well as 3 SB800's. I invested in 5 pocket wizards, 2 SB80DX's and 2 SB28's when I shot the D1X. This is a pre CLS body and to use multiple flashes I either needed a lot of PC cables (yuk) or wireless remotes. The Strobist website was a godsend. When we changed over to the D3/D300 bodies I jumped at the SB800 and CLS. I have started using pocket wizard's and a couple SB80DX units to highlight or accent background features. I plug in a PW into the commanding SB800's PC terminal and let it trigger the remote 80DX units in manual mode. The 3 800's are in CLS mode and work perfectly. The pre-flash does nothing to the manual flashes. Some uses for this setup have been accenting the large wall mounted cross behind the alter in weddings, or lighting stained glass from the outside during evening weddings. With the PW mounted at the camera the remotes can be turned off or on depending on the situation. Also, the PW's come in handy for those times the CLS remotes are a little (or a lot) our of the commanders range

Just a little food for creative thought.
