Thinking through pros and cons of stacking our washer and dryer.

We have full-sized, front-load washer and dryer that currently live next to each other in a closet off the kitchen. We've bought the manufacturer's stacking kit and are trying to decide if it's a good idea. On the one hand, it would free up half the closet for storage. On the other hand... am I about to create a hassle for myself? Is this setup harder on the laundress (reaching up vs. bending down)? Do I need to reinforce the floor so they don't fall through under the extra weight? If you've done this, or decided not to, I'd appreciate your insight on things both mechanical and practical.
