Yes, I'd second that. It surprises me, that this method is not more widely discussed. It is -at least- an amazing approach in his simpliness and in its line of proceeding, even if it should not be efficient.
Hope, it will make its way into some books, at least as an annotation, or in journals/books which are dedicated to recreational and surprising mathematics.
