Since the OEM tubing isn't available, what is the prevailing opinion about the advantages/disadvantages of copper/nickel vs. stainless steel?

I like stainless for the lack of contamination aspect, but since brake fluid likes to absorb water, it needs to be changed yearly anyway, so I'm not sure the copper contamination problem is really a problem as much as an aspect of the material use.

The copper/nickel bends so much easier than stainless, but the same flare tools work on either, and those are the spendy bits, so is there really a price difference?
