Has anyone tried this in conjunction with Octopus Deploy? Do the packages that are produced from this work well with it?

According to http://racingcow.wordpress.com/2012/05/07/octopus-and-tfs/, 

So I could use something like TFS NuGetter to have TFS build a standard NuGet package, right? Wrong. There are subtle differences between a standard NuGet package and what Octopus needs. To handle these differences, Paul Stovell created OctoPack https://octopus.atlassian.net/wiki/display/help/OctoPack , a command-line utility that builds the Octopus-specific NuGet packages.

Admitting, I don't know Octopus and therefore I don't know what is required to make it an "Octopus-specific" NuGet package.  However, NuGetter provides a PowerShell pre-package setup capability and then uses NuGet.exe itself to do the packaging and allows the inclusion of whatever parameters you wish to add for the creation of the package.  Unless the NuGet package is created in a process that doesn't use NuGet.exe or performs a post-package step then I don't see the reason behind the statement above (from the blog post).
