Seems really ridgid, haven't worked with it 1st hand though. Another problem is fittings, you wouldn't be able to slide it over a barb and have a tight seal.

just way too much trouble for little to no benefit.

I have pex plumbing in my house, and have done a few modifications and worked with it a bit.
Unless you have a lot of 90 degree adapters, it wouldn't work.. you can't bend pex that much. It would be inefficient with all the 90 degree bends, and just wouldn't work because it uses a compression fitting - you wouldn't even get the tool in your computer case to compress the steel bands.
