Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Having done 4-wheel drums, and 3 disks (two front, one rear) on a bike ...
I just can't get my head around the difference in complexity. The bike took literally 15 minutes to put new pads on all three disks. The car -- which was old enough to have drums front and rear -- good lord, that was a two-man job that took most of an afternoon, what with the bleeding and the springs and ... yeah, what you said.

I can't think of any (even theoretical) advantage of drums that would make up for that.

New Wikipedia has a list of advantages.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drum_brake#Advantages

Physical complexity is one of the Disadvantages. However, that they work better for parking brakes over discs is a big Advantage.
