Here is a package I personally put together for myself, figured others may want this. I also wanted to get the attention of ROM Devs so maybe they will incorporate these versions into their build if bundled or recommend these to be flashed with their ROMs .
I noticed all of the existing GApps packages floating around all used the leaked 4.1 GApps and not the updated ones from the official 4.1.1 Image from Google. So I compiled a new zip that has the exact file structure as the 7-26 Goo.im (CM Promoted) gapps package but used all files from the official 4.1.2 JZO54K release.
Archived original OP on 8/31 to post #3 -If anyone wants to read more on original ranting that made me create these packages in further detail.
There are two GApps pacakges available, use one or the other, both include all needed gapps and services that are required to run Google software....only one small difference - Camera and Gallery app.
Both Include: Calendar Sync, Bookmarks Sync, Face Detection, News & Weather, Google Backup/Restore, Contacts Sync, Sound Search, GoogleTTS, Google Now w/English Installed, Play Store, Talk, Voice Search
Pick one only, use the explanations of each below to determine which version is best for you. These should be compatible with any JB based rom.
gapps-jb-20121012-JZO54K-Formula84 | This version is for users that want to keep the Roms custom camera options (Power Shutter, ISO changes, etc.) only issue is that this has a trade off, you wil not be able to use Google Picture Sync.
gapps-addon-JZO54K-Picasa-Sync | This is an addon for users that want to use Google Picture Sync and get the experience Google intended.
Note: Some Factory Shipped GApps have not been inlcuded due to newer versions being available on the Play Store for download. Also available via Addon zips -See this post for explanation of addon zips or Click on the name/links to take you to installs for each (GMail, Youtube, Maps / street view, Google +, Music, etc.)

I have only tested these with installing in the same recovery session as the Rom. Not sure if that matters or not, but I have been doing that since the Nexus S GApps Wallet issues back in the day. Thats how I would recommend this be installed.
Google Wallet Installation:
Only thing I can see people having issues with on Play Store may be Google Wallet. I know that when you search on PC not even signed in Wallet does not come up in results, its almost Like Google is Hiding it. So here is the link I used to install it properly, also had another Liquid user test in IRC successfully.
From you phone click this link, https://play.google....letnfcrel&hl=en, if asked which to open with use Play Store...You should be directed to the Wallet App and have the option to install.
Alternate Google Wallet Install:
I have made a flashable install for the latest 9/5/12 wallet since it seems to be a mixed bag of results using the link.
The link worked for me prior then after my phone got wiped and I setup from scratch I found the link did not work for me either.
So anyone that wants wallet check out the "Addon Pacakges" folder in the JZO54K Gapps folder from any of the links in the OP.
Edit: Oh and forgot to say if you found this useful don't forget to grow my internet-peter-meter by hitting "Like" - also some people respond to this topic so it doesn't get buried in the multitude of Rom threads
