double double cardan?

Just wondering if anyone has ever seen/heard of a driveshaft with double cardans at both ends? It would have to be a fairly long driveshaft to begin with to pull it off, I would think...

A double double cardan shaft would be usefull where the transfer case yoke and axle pinion are out of alignment on two separate planes. For example running a "centered yoke" transfer case (like a Dana 300 or NP231) with a rear axle having its diff offset to one side (axle intended for a Q-trac). Since both ends of the driveshaft would be "self-cancelling", you wouldn't have to really worry about matching angles of the tc or diff (within reason).
