[AH] modular: where to start?

Whilst making patches I keep wishing my MS-20 or EML-101 had one more
filter...and an extra LFO...and another VCA...and that each VCO was
independently controllable...I think this means I ought to start
thinking about a modular.

The system that really appeals to me is Doepfer, but I'd be very
grateful for any advice from you users on the dark side about the
relative merits of different systems, as there seem to be quite a few.
And are any cross-compatible? Where does one begin with what can
clearly so easily become an obsession??

I'm based in London UK so it might make more sense to go for a
European system, although the pound is still strong against the dollar
(for the time being).
