If you had to set something up VERY fast and weren't going for huge loads, I see how this could work.

The first pic shows nearly the same system, but there is a knot in the webbing that keeps everything from slipping, and gives you a theoretical 4:1. I guess I'd probably take the time to tie one extra knot, even in a hurry, then I wouldn't have to worry about pinching the webbing as it goes around one of the carabiners to keep it from slipping.
I completely agree.

One of the other posts also recommended taking an extra turn or two around the static biner, which would also add friction there, be faster than a knot, and should also reduce the "weak point" of adding another knot.
