How useful are piccolo snares?

I've been looking into purchasing a piccolo snare to do drum n bass kind of things but can they actually be used in an everyday playing situation?

Re: paradiddles around the set

Once i had the sticking down i just moved it around the drumset instinctively without really thinking about what sound sources i was hitting: eventually you will stumble across some pretty cool fills.

Re: fill ideas??

I have been searching for such a program, as many videos on the internet are just to fast to work out the stickings. Can you name some examples of this type of software?
