How important is 'weather sealing' in your choice of bodies/lenses?

For me it is hugely important, and a big reason why - if the camera and first five lenses pan out - I am considering the Sony A7/A7R (and intrigued by the Olympus EM1 and Nikon's new offering). I hear things about Fuji's new FF cameras, and I look at the (ever rumored, never surfacing) Pentax rumors, and think how I will not invest in a system without weatherproofing regardless of the image quality. Heck, I may even pick up a Nikon 1AW1 for the weatherproofing and waterproof-ness of it. So I was just curious, how important is weatherproofing to most of you in your purchases? Make or break? Important but not the deciding factor? Not important at all?
