I've knit with it many times. It is splitty, but so soft and the fabric is really pretty and nice.

so this seems... like more work than some of us need for our basic projects... is it really the preferred method overall, or would the so-called 'braided' or 'magic' joins also pass muster?

I think that once again, it's a matter of preference. It's good to know about different joins because one may work better than another for particular yarns or knit fabrics (lace for example).
