I will be interested to learn how the tubing works out.  I suspect that in a
straight run the corrugations would serve as bearing surfaces rather than
snag magnets, but you will find out and hopefully report.

And the second empty pipe is a great idea.  Our cables must be little more
than rabbits as they sure do multiply fast.
