This had come up before, I thought it was here on DIY, but it might of been
on Electronica.

When I was out playing around all the time, I did this with great results.
I had a bunch of gear that used wall warts and got sick of the fact that I
had to hack a way to fit all the warts into power strips in a rack case.

Regulate it well, filter the front end, and use high quality parts. Go for it.
