New Trem studs?

Has anyone found out if the new non-locking studs are interchangeable with the older locking studs? Would putting the older studs into a new Jem be a smart modification, or is there any benifits to the new studs? Maybe having a new solid stud as opposed to the old hollow locking one will give more sustain?

If you look at the last page(page 6) of the NAMM preview thread Eddie Kolesar says they ARE interchangable.

The only benefit of the new stud is the few that cracked at the top in the wrench hole now won't, the rest is all detrimental to the solid pivot point the old studs offered.
