Welcome to the forum Tesseract.
It is good to see someone with some knowledge of the capacitor application here, it seems to be the last of the technical aspects to be discussed.

Given that you have stated that the guide is 20mA/uF is there a rule of thumb for estimating the ripple current of a particular set up?

Also is there any wisdom about the best location for the capacitors, it seems they are generally built within a controller but is this any better than say a separate capacitor box located closer to the batteries?
