Has anyone tried one of these TyreSwitch levers? I found it worked very well.http://richardtulloch.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/a-better-tyre-lever-...

I read your post - this contraption wouldn't have helped in a pro-bike race where I'm pretty sure they were all riding glued-on tubulars.
Regarding the contraption itself - I've found taking off tires a lot easier than trip to seat tires back without continually 'chasing the gap' - especially with tubeless tires... and with inner tubes I'm always nervous there is a pinch flat - the video "Putting up the tyre without brace" promises wonders!
Peter, I was nervous about the pinch flat problem too, but I pressed on and I seem to have got away with it, at least this time. Perhaps Cadel should slip a Tyre Switch into the back pocket of his BMC jersey. Glued-on tubulars? We should be so lucky!
He might find it useful in the Tour Down Under where we'll have carbon tacks! (sorry!) :-)
