I used it for Scope::Escape::Sugar.  I used that module as a case study
for my talk on syntax plugins at YAPC::EU 2010.  It performs several
nasty tricks to work around the limitations of the 5.12 API (mainly that
you can't call back to the core parser for subexpressions).  For 5.14
I should be able to revise S:E:S to not need these tricks, and that'll
probably be the basis of a talk for YAPC::EU 2011.

There's a trivial usage in Keyword::Boolean.  It uses the keyword hook,
but doesn't do anything interesting.
