Yes it is a royal pain to try to straighten them, but worth the effort to me since it lets me get the pads that little bit closer to the rotor surface.

I use a dedicated cable cutter and dress the ends with a Dremel. Flaring the end of the liner is important too as it's very stiff on these housings.

Pay attention to cable routing, too, on our Cannondale the cable housing was routed outside and over the chainstay, which put a severe bend to it right as it got to the caliper. Re-routing it inside the chainstay straightened things out.
