Default S-Pen on AOSP

Can someone give me input on how the S-Pen is on any roms outside of touchwiz? I'm really tired of the dated 4.1.2, but need S-Pen for classes. I don't use s-note, but just need the digitizer to be accurate. Mainly interested in 4.3. I've run 4.4 on my S3 and it's still a bit buggy and I need my note to be stable.

My understanding is that the s-pen works fine, including the palm rejection when the pen gets close to the screen, and afaik even apps that use the spen, like sketchbook and whatnot. You wont be able to take a screenshot by holding the spen button and holding the pen to the screen or anything like that but the pen should work just fine on AOSP. You also wont have the samsung apps that play nice with the pen but you prpbably already knew that.
