I used it when I needed to tune my old pcmcia 56k modem. I thought about 
it's merits last year or so and found that it was only relevant to 2.0 
or 2.2 kernels.

Not sure if there is any point in fixing it to work on the newer kernels.

Being on stage with the band in front of crowds shouting, "Get off! No! 
We want normal music!", I think that was more like acting than anything 
I've ever done.
