No it doesn't.

Look, I have a *recent* distro (up-to-date F16) and the tool that is
mentioned (ss) doesn't actually use the new feature even when compiled
in.

So it doesn't "replace" anything, and buys normal people nothing at all.

Some day, maybe. Today? No. It's pure baggage. It shouldn't be "default y".
