You'll need damn good eyes and steady hand to do it with epoxy, but it would be more permanent I suppose. I personally haven't had any trouble with the Pencil yet, never having to redo it, (I put a small sticker over it when done so it can't rub off).
The only real advantage to the pencil is if the CPU has to be sent back, removing the epoxy so it can't be detected could be very hard, especially if they have one of these
(been playing with the manual settings today)
