Hop fans, ever heard of this?!

There is a bar chain here in the Atlanta area named Summit's Wayside Tavern. They have adopted a process developed by Dogfish Head brewery in Delaware called "Randall". A "Randall" is a three-foot long, cylinder/filter packed with a half a pound of whole-leaf hops that is affixed to a beer line leading out of a keg. As the beer is poured, it flows through the Randall, thus filtering the beer through fresh hops before serving; in essence, "dry hopping" the beer to enhance and change the flavor. Has anyone ever done this before? It seems like a great idea. I've not yet made it over to the bar for one of these (they only do it on Monday) but it sounds great!
