BPM, does winamp use it? where to get it?

i see this tag, BPM, for beats per minute, in winamp. i guess DJ software and itunes use it.

my question is does winamp use it at all? i was thinking maybe for the vis stuff. and what is the best way to get the tags? i saw these:

http://www.pistonsoft.com/bpm-detector.html

http://www.bpmdetection.com/

but i wanted to know what others thought?

also, any suggestions for doing this in FLAC? what is the name of that field? just BPM?

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Winamp doesn't use BPM for anything and just allows for it to be managed. and seems that the norm is BPM for the flac tag name (based on a quick search).
