How important is it to teach handwriting?

A Summit is currently underway in Washington, DC, debating the importance of including handwriting, as opposed to only keyboarding, in today’s schools, as reported in Education Week.  A comparison is being made to the argument about the need for teaching math facts when calculators and computers came into wise use.   How important is teaching penmanship in your schools?  And where would you stand on this argument?

    After all, he did produce a handwriting booklet for the CANSTART series.
