does anyone use homosote on top in the winter?

I just saw a demonstration where they use homosote in a shim as a water wick above the inner cover

any thoughts?

Heard about it some, not much used.   Here are some pics of it from your area.  http://mainebeekeepers.org/annual-meeting/annual-meeting-fall-2010.html   Maybe someone here uses it and can chime in.
