Maybe I should ask the question differently...
Why would I need to switch around the gas lines?
With my limited experience I agree the barb connections are a royal pain but my assumption is that the keg is the only thing that I need to move around. To do that all I need to do is use the disconnects. Plus, I can't see a need to clean or change the gas lines. Sure the beer line needs cleaning and maybe replacement but do gas lines end up being replaced much?
I'm sure there is a good reason that I'm not seeing due to lack of experience. I'd hate to invest in a distributor and find out later I should have paid a bit more for the MFL because I didn't see something in the process.
