TETRIS protoboard

While writing the PICtris post, an idea hit me for cool prototyping areas. I really hate the single pin ones. Rows of pinholes going from one end to the other are an improvement, but not by much... anyway here's my idea..

5 blocks connected between each other with cut-away traces...in the sign +....

in this config you can get 4 pinholes in-line each connected to a different 5block group, also available is a square of 4 pinholes with each one connected to a different group as well
best regards FIlip.

Cool idea.
Is a fanout of 4 the optimal?
I've seen protoboards with chains of three, perhaps a similar construction with a L-generating shape.
It could maybe create arbitrary length groups every second row.

Just a suggestion

cool idea, but I wanted to keep the area the same anywhere you look...constant lenght L shapes would work
