I'm trying to avoid the word "rinko" here, but that's basically what I'm doing. It works really well for me. I just don't like messing with the brake-cable connections
I've got SunTour XC Pro canti's on my S&S coupled touring bike. The hangars for the straddle cables are similar to the Weinmann centerpulls... the cross-section forms a "J", and the straddle cable fits in the curve at the bottom of the "J".
I've been able to remove the straddle cable, although it does require the brake cable to be bent a bit.
Here's a shot of the front brake....

Would this work for you?
