Create a Kits that look and behave like Simple Products

I’d like to create products that look and behave exactly like simple products, but that actually are composed of other products, like a bundle product.  We sell complete kits (with configurable options) and find the public bundle interface way too confusing in some situations.  We currently just create simple products and I manually keep track of each component in each kit.

I’ve experimented with creating a bundle product that contains only the correct items defaulted to yes and then by using some javascript and CSS, I can make it look very similar to a simple product page. The biggest issue is that Add to Cart buttons from other pages say that you need to select options before it can be added to your cart which isn’t ideal.

Has anyone found a good solution to this?

I just noticed this feature request: http://magento.uservoice.com/forums/24441-magento-ecommerce-platform/suggestions/341595-add-a-new-product-type-that-groups-simple-products

It’s basically what I’m looking for also.  Anyone know of any workarounds to achieve something similar?
