Although they will work just fine in the right applications, beware of
"zero" Ohm resistors in high current and high frequency areas because they
are not really 0 Ohms.  They have a finite resistance and will dissipate
heat.  If you use them to bridge a path with significant current, you should
make sure that the Wattage rating will not be exceeded and also consider the
Voltage drop.  They are also not a very good short at high frequencies.

Jeez, you guys do things the hard way, I just use a zero-ohm resistor, it's
a standard part available from multiple sources in any size from 0201 up to
2512. This works especially well for maintaining multiple grounds with a
single point tie.
