heating wire embedded?

One more thing ... any opinions, good, bad or ugly, on the heating wire that is embedded in the cement to warm the tile?

Thanks!

the entire floor ... will this be a secure bed for laying tile ( is there a minimum suggested thickness?), or will the underlying hardwood eventually crack it?
