FAS2040 - Manage using e0P port with System Manager or DFM

Has anybody tried using the e0P port on a FAS2040 for use with System Manager or DFM? Since the port is basically of no use until 7.3.4 goes GA for many customers I'd be interested in knowing if anybody has converted that port over to a management port in the meantime? I haven't tried (will be doing so tomorrow) and was wondering if anybody knew if it would work or not. It would be convenient if System Manager, if that's the management tool of the future, would be intelligent enough to use the system console redirection capabilities of the RLM or BMC to manage since not all boxes in production today have a convenient e0M port like the 31xx series. Not everybody is willing to give up a GbE data port for management unfortunately. Any thoughts?
