	Define "common".  :-)
	I can bear witness to having done so (using X) multiple times
over a 30 year career.  In no case was it the only possible solution;
in several it was clearly superior to the alternatives.  That various
major players implement and actively maintain some version suggests the
concept is valuable.
	Anyone else?
