At least I have:
0) Opera browser
1) Qt packages replacing the ones provided by distro
2) My own application
3) VLC with all it's dependencies (quite a lot)
4) MPlayer with all it's dependencies
5) XMMS 1.x (screwed up build by the distro vendor, lacks my patches)
6) LAME (does any distro include this?)
7) grip (dropped by many distros already)

I'm very regularly building rpms and debs that either replace distro 
vendor's packages or add new software.

I think Opera is one good example who build and distribute packages for 
multiple distributions.
