Custom White Balance

Some simple questions concerning Custom White Balance.

The scenario: I'm on a several hours long walk with my DP2 Merrill.

I always use AWB.

What is the easiest and most practical way to set Custom White Balance?

Do I need to do this for each and every shoot?

How realiable is Custom White Balance - or in other words: what are the odds that I might get a white balance which is pretty far off?

And (I'm fully aware of the DP1M / DP2M / DP3M colour discussions lately in this forum), what's really the point of Custom White Balance in my scenario, when there are so many options processing the RAWs afterwards, so that I can basically adjust the colour as I want (I use SPP and then Nik's Viveza)?
