I've seen these off-and-on for years, and have found those that use them
swear by them. Since I don't commute with my Stumpy, I'll stick to clipless.

Have you tried the hybrid shoe route? I had a pair of SPD compatible
sneakers a while ago (you know, those Airwalk-looking low tops?), and
despite the Ritchey-made SPD pedals on my bike didn't work too well with
them (Nashbar specials), they were comfy enough to wear around as everyday

Pantani, the Giro? I wouldn't count out Ulrich (though it seems all he cares
about is Lance and the Tour) ... I'd like to see Tyler Hamilton make himself
a serious contender this year....

(have salsa with your name on it, need to get it into the mail next week,
along with a book for someone else)
