ipfw uid and mpsafenet

I've got a 6.3 box in which I needed to use debug.mpsafenet=0 in order 
to avoid deadlocks with ipfw uid rules.
I'm thinking of upgrading this to 7.2 and I see the above variable has 
gone away. Does this mean it is now safe to use such ipfw rules?

The last things I could find wrt this matter is this thread: 
but it's from 2007...

Any other caveat?

  bye & Thanks
