This seems to be in use, but like many such coinages, seems to show up as a definition more than in actual use, as in "Wouldn't it be cool to use this word?" I'd say there's enough to include it, but I don't have time at the moment to run it down exhaustively. -dmh 14:28, 20 October 2005 (UTC)
Found a few from newspapers archived online. Not really sure about the adjective sense though: it seems to be rather rare. —Muke Tever 00:42, 26 October 2005 (UTC)
