Anyone replace vacuum locks with motors?

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience replacing the vacuum locks with motorized ones.

Seems like motorized locks would be better for working with the higher quality aftermarket alarm systems.

If your vacuum locks are working properly, then all you need for a remote/keyless entry setup is a small motor to raise and lower the driver's door lock, and all the others will follow. I plan to install such a setup on my SD eventually.
