Logic Pro 9 Does Serato improve flex quality?

May I ask some of you more technical bods about time - based operations in Logic?
Does pitch and time use the same engine as Flex and the general stretch functions on the arrange page?
If so, do third party plug-ins like Serato improve quality for all of these functions?

Serrato is for PT only. There's Radius by izotope which I have and is for Logic. I use it for pitch change of important tracks and use the Elastique plugin for quick realtime pitch change on others. Logic's built in flex audio is great for tempo changes of tracks in a song though. I use it all the time. But, when I've wanted to change the tempo of a 2 track final mix I've found that the daw Reaper does a better job than Logic's flex or the Radius plug in (for me).

Daveboy: there is a version of Serato Pitch N Time that works within Logic, called Pitch N Time LE: http://serato.com/pitchntime-le

However, while Logic allows 3rd party algorithms to work inside it's "Pitch and Time Machine" Flex is a whole different thing, and only uses its own proprietary algorithms.

I hadn't used PnT LE for as far back as Logic 8, I now notice that the option disappeared... does it work in Logic 9 / Intel 32 bit ?

According to the "minimum specs" page on Serato's website, it should work in L9 Intel 32-bit. I've no experience with it personally, however.
