Any recommendations you can get for this "pre-stuff" work?  The best I 
could find was about $10 to lay down a single non-fine-pitch SMD IC at 
under Q100 quantities.

However, when I am doing proto boards on a budget, I get the SMT parts pre-stuffed and do the rest in thru hole. This works to be a pretty good compromise and fairly economic. If I were having to do all my own soldering I would prefer not to have to do the SMT parts if I had the choice.
