Cool idea. But with most filter designs there's a certain amount of phase 
shifting so I wonder if with some filter designs you may end up with more of 
a notch filter effect?  Or at least depending on what filters you do this 
with you may get closer or farther from the target.

Do any modular synth companies sell an All-Pass filter module?  You could 
use this to continuously vary the phase of a signal, or...?
