sarge and libc6-i686 (nptl)

I noticed that sarge has the libc optimized for i686 with the new thread
library (nptl).  Has anyone tried it?  Is it safe to install (guessing
the 'old' non-optimized libc gets removed if I do?).

I really want to test out nptl, but I'd like to hear about other
people's experience (in installation, usage etc).  From what I've
gathered around the 'net, nptl is a big deal, so I'm a little hesitant
in just jumping in the water without looking around first.
