Mesh tape

Speaking of tape, everything I read seems to recommend paper joint tape, but you see several varieties of the plastic mesh kind in every store. What's it for and does anyone use it?

Besides drywall, the mesh tape is also often used for fiberglass repairs and cement backerboard installation.

Here's a few links to past discussions.
