Like he said!
I think having a gas lighter is a must have for convenience if no other reason.
Plenty of other good reasons are listed too.
Water proof matches are essential plus a couple of other fire starter methods including a Bic.

I have been buying a few tins of butane and the stove lighters.
The lighters are a bit bulkier, but can be refilled time after time.
And have safety slides to prevent gas lose.

Loose ends make my arse itch and I have just clipped my finger nails. So the itch flows to my trigger finger.

I purchased a butane adaptor for butane cans so they can be used on normal camping stoves. Price is $4.45 one gets four cans 220g of butane at Bunnings and going rate for camping gas cylinder is just under $10 for a single 100g canister. 

Gas adaptors are between $5 for just a simple adaptor to <$15 for the one I got.

I also purchased a fire lighter that fits onto the gas canisters - they are like a mini blow torch.
