[SI-LIST] : How do you use buried capacitance?

I understand the priciples behind buried capacitance. What I don't
understand is how you use it when designing a board.

Is it only used for decoupling?

How do you figure out how much decoupling capacitance it is equivalent to
for a particular IC?

Do you use it along with your standard decoupling capacitors (for added
effect)?

Thanks,

Chris
