Yeah I've seen that. I sure hopes it work out for him.

The disadvantage if any of the technique is that the branch is no longer pliable (glue). So if the branch shape is where you want it, it is indeed a good way to salvage an otherwise disposable branch (death).

Because the wood itself carries no fluid or nutrition, it should back bud in the future during branch pruning/thinning reduction etc... To what extent that remains to be seen. Regardless he was able to save the branch for the time being and I hope well into the future.
