I'd be concerned about being able to seal the bottom but more importantly, the structural integrity of the carboy now that you've put a hole in the base.

Be careful man; I could see all kinds of bad if you load it up full of liquid and that thing decides to split at the hole you created.

Wow, that glass is thick on the bottom. I've been meaning to document my attempt at shatter proofing a carboy. Maybe tomorrow

This is very cool! How do plan on controlling the flow when harvesting yeast?

Why not just use a better bottle?

i would like to see as well... my friend tried a similar type design with out the hole (a modified racking cane to vent co2) and found the angle of the carboy neck was not steep enough to drain the yeast properly. it should be around... what 60deg or something? if you figure that out you may be onto something

Because plastics don't belong in brewing.

That's what I was thinking. My guess is he had an extra carboy sitting around readily available for use.
