Default Ball and Pin-lock disconnects on same line?

I'm guessing this has been discussed before, but my search-fu is weak, so please bear with me...

So I found a nice deal for kegs on Craigslist the other day and couldn't pass it up. The only problem is they were pin-locks and my kegerator is set up for ball-locks.

My question is, would it work to put a stainless barbed tee with one of each kind of disconnect at the end of each line so they were interchangeable? Worse come to worse I'll set two up for ball-lock and two up for pin-lock, but it would really be nice to not have to worry about what kegs are free and if I have an open line for that type of keg. Thanks

I just have flare end fittings on all of mine
Just unscrew the ball lock coupler and put in the pin lock etc.

Brilliant!

The pin lock ones I have are actually the threaded ones, so I'll just have to buy a few more and some of the barbs that screw on I guess. Thanks
