Question Identification Lights & Nav Lights on Sailing Vessels

while reviewing the Rules with my students, I started wondering if any one has the optional Identity lights at the top of their masts.
For those who aren't sure of what I'm speaking about, it is the 'All Around Red over Green lights'. Displayed along with your normal navigation lights on deck.
I know when I had asked about the illusive Cone, apex down, that meant that you were under power with your sails up. And not one of you had one on board.
Now are the Red over Green all around lights in use on your sailboat or not??

Note: Can not be used with the combination light at the top of your mast.

So would you use them??

Would you install them??

I would have made it a poll here but my ignorance of starting one is showing.
