The temp. lag and overheating can be addressed by using an indoor temp sensor with a motorized mixing valve and constant circulation in the radiant floor piping. You can also use an outdoor temp. sensor the same way and get excellent results. Zoning can be done with telestats { zone valves} on each circuit. Look into Viega products. They have a large assortment of mixing stations.

I put my 1/2" pex at 6" space for normal heat and then closer 9(about 4")for designed warm spots.

That's a good idea to use closer spacing with the PEX in areas like the bathroom for a warmer floor.  I wish I was at the point now where I could install the radiant as I do the tile floor, however I know the new system will be a long ways away and I'm not 100% committed on doing that yet. 

I'll get the floor down with plans to add radiant from underneath the floor in the future.  In the mean time, I am going to buy one of those heated electric pads that I can put under the bathroom tile.  I see they have a thermostat for those as well and I know the wife will really enjoy getting out of her tub and stepping on the nice warm tile! 

A friend of mine has one of those air chisels and is going to let me borrow that to help in ripping up the thinset.  I hope it works well, I'll let you know  :D 
I'll be starting this project in a little over 2 weeks so I still have some time for research  ;D

Thanks for the details and suggestions.

Keep in mind you should use pex-al-pex since most likely it will be a closed system, it prevents oxygen infiltration which can cause corrosion of the metal parts in the system. Plain pex will allow oxygen in over time.
