I think most people would want to keep the ballast out of  the hood.
It keeps the weight and heat out of the hood and gives you more
flexability in designing the hood.

What I would like to see is a reasonably priced 4 bulb prewired system
with an electronic ballast and end caps.
Now that they are making  T8's in 4100K, 5000K and 6500K color
temperatures my preference would be for the 32W T8's.
