I would guess that Jim's want of doing this isn't for cross patching to
another system, but more from being able to use the inherent mult
properties of stacking banana plugs. As well, banana's are more durable
than 1/8" plugs in general.

Doing the adapter cable trick would work, but I would think it would lend
itself to creating much more of a cabling tangle.
