    It will certainly do. I'll try it out with the next simple
    design, maybe a dozen or so components.
    I have certain self-imposed rules while designing a PCB, one of
    which is to use as few jumpers as possible. Having dozens of them
    on a single board somehow seems clumsy to me.

    And I really hate "those pesky crossovers" as you call them.
    Working on an existing product during a fault-finding session
    and/or when trying to improvise replacements with locally
    available parts, all without any kind of manual, it's often
    necessary to trace the circuit and reverse engineer it. It's easy
    to develop an intense dislike for those crossovers, especially
    when they occur every few millimeters.

    Follow-up: Just finished calling a friend who runs a dental
    clinic with his wife who's also a dental surgeon. He happened to
    be away in Delhi but he said that he has a good stock of diamond
    and carbide burs. He told me to go to his clinic tomorrow and
    take whatever I need.

    You want a bur with a ball shaped tip for drilling holes. The tips
    come in a variety of shapes, but AFAIK ball shape is best.
