I'm a fan too, obviously, but I think you're not so lonely in this regard. I'm sure there's more people who've experienced both who love the fact that you don't have to pay attention to sequencing with the way it works now (with all sources).
And as for early TT worship, I'm a bit amazed noone mentioned the fighter.
Especially a fighter with Wonnafyt. It can get beyond silly, even in vicious - popcorn bowling with a slowing glyph gives TT piety, and killing slowed monsters with a fighter allready has you at +2 XP per kill, one level of Tikki's edge makes it +3, and you can take it all the way to 6 sometimes. If you score a "monster zoo" subdungeon of some sort it's lolworthy.
Also - Bloodmage. He munches on popcorn anyway for the bloodpools to help fireball stuff with B2P. Early TT gives him a getindare for a free finishing blow strike when he has no health (precast) and gets him levels faster.
EDIT: I did a little editing on the wiki page, there were mistakes.
