i learned this trick some time ago and my first reaction was that the
cables would be ruined by the repeated stress.
the guy who showed it to me swore that this was not so, so i tried it.
i have been doing this for about 5 years and no cable problems yet.
i think the stress on the cable at the plug ends is always going to be 
that's why the cable makers usually reinforce the cable there.

no telling what it does to the cable directionality, though. (lol)
maybe a new way to make loops...
