what does chicken feet do to stock/broth?

The exotic food thread on the GT board got me thinking about whether it was worth including feet in my stockpot, and if so if I needed to prepare/clean it in some special way. Others have suggested it makes it more 'chickeny'. Those things have probably been in some manky stuff before they met their bitter end, so I'm feeling like I should be a bit cautious about this one.

A chicken feet story I'm childishly proud of: bought a chicken once with all the bits on. I was holding the feet in an effort to to cut them off, and because it's a mechanical system of pulley-like tendons I was putting pressure on, the bird started scratching the palm of my hand as I cut. Yeesh!
