OK, so I upgraded from FUD 3.0.3 to 3.0.4RC3 and turned on karma.

The green +1 and red -1 are there on the posts. You can click on one or the other and it disappears. Fine & dandy.

What does it do, from there? Is it supposed to show in a member's profile or something? Is it supposed to tie into the rank system? Is there something missing from my implementation of FUD?

You can see it next to your avatar in posts.

Patches to extend it further would be greatly appreciated.

Frank, what template has the karma code to display the karma value? I'm not seeing it in my customized theme and may have an old template in the theme that needs updating...

Yeah, well I did add the ref to the drawmsg.tmpl file. After doing that, the "rate this author" showed up, but there is no karma rating showing up in the user info area.

I am using user_info_left as the base theme, with path_info incorporated into it.

As a test, I changed my theme to default, and I see the karma rating in the user info area, so there's got to be more to it than adding the one ref to drawmsg.tmpl... or does it only work with the default, top-oriented user info themes?
