Default post-chilling transfer to your fermenter

Hi folks; maybe I'm just over-tired but was thinking of drilling out my new keggles and using compression fittings and valve but then read a wiki on whirlpooling and had a thought:

For those using immersion chillers:
How many are then simply siphoning out of the brew kettle?

Maybe I don't have to mess around with fittings for my keggle and will just siphon out instead!

Some people siphon. I'm still using a saucepot to ladle it through a strainer/funnel (for about 2/3 of the wort, after the kettle is light enough I just lift and pour the rest).

I still can't keep what I want out of the fermenter with the fitting. Siphoning's pretty easy. I do both depending on my mood.
