They used to make wire-wrap wire that had teflon insulation and could 
take the heat. I don't know if they still make it; wire wrap is so last 

Keith Barr used it for hand-building prototypes rapidly. His technique 
was to nick the insulation with an exacto knife, wrap it around the pin 
of an IC, and solder it. I could never master it, but I still have a 
roll of the wire I got for myself.

I saw this done on a unit that I got in, and it looks like a really neat way to do rework, but I don’t really know what to search for online.
