Strategic use of the destructible safety rock

Terran Discussion
So I had a tvz on akilon opened reaper expand into reactor mine mmm. I hit his third and closed the rocks behind me preventing a surround and flank. Then I mined the ramp between his nat and 3rd and took a brief nap and woke up to a huge green goo splatter and lots of dead lings and an insta gg from him. Thought it was pretty good use of the rocks.

Is anyone using them defensively or offensively?

*gasp*
Is this a new mechanic I haven't seen yet?! O.o
yah the rocks at some thirds when destroyed will block the entire entrance to the third.
They also kill units in the path they fall in, so you can hit them until they have just a few HP and then crush part of the opponents (or your own) army when they try to move through the choke. I think there should be an achievement for killing units with rocks.

Like "Meatpounder" to go with the Meatgrinder achievement!
