If using 1-layer or 2-layer boards this must be a good method of
keeping your power lines out of sight. On an 8-layer board it doesn't
matter much.

Crosstalk would potentially (sic!) be higher when opamps are shared
between voices (etc), of course. Probably not a problem in a eurorack
module, but more so in a hifi unit.
