I want warm feets!

Marmoleum Click + Electric Radiant Floor Heat = ?
I am considering ripping up the old flooring in my house and installing electric radiant floor heat with Marmoleum Click on top.
I realize this is not the ideal flooring for radiant heat, but I don't particularly want tile in my entire house.
Currently, my bathroom and kitchen have radiant heating and I love it (installed by previous owners).
It would primarily be used as supplemental heating to my central forced air heat--warm feet are fun!
My questions are:
1)Has anyone specifically used Marmoleum with the electric radiant heating? If so, how did it turn out? Does it heat up well?
2) Any brand suggestions regarding the heating elements? I'd like to avoid having to do a cement install, and am leaning more towards something like this
3) And a sidebar question: What's the usual life for the electric heating elements? I can't seem to find that answer on the interwebs.
(Would be installed over standard plywood subfloor above a crawl space. I live in the Seattle area if it matters.)
