If portability isn't an issue, you can make your own stands from 2x4's and a bit of plywood. Bogan's accessories can be used with the fancy large stands or with simpler light stands. The elaborate systems with chain drives and so on only make sense for a busy commercial setup where time is money so fast set changes pay the overhead for fancy background systems. Also, unless you will specialize in large groups or maybe still life setups shot with extreme wide lenses taking in a sweep of background, the 12 foot rolls are probably overkill. Much better color selection in the shorter length.
