      It is an interesting debate. What you want is a tarp that you are
      happy with and a catenary cut is just a tool to help achieve
      tautness. Sufficient tieouts, panel pullouts, no-stretch guyline,
      shockcord/elastic, tarp shape, ridgeline orientation and rigid/fixed
      tieoff points are also tools to help achieve tautness. And if you
      have other problems a catenary cut or any of the other things I
      mentioned may not make up for them... for instance if one of the
      trees that you are tied off to slowly bends during the night you are
      going to have a real hard time maintaining a taut tarp.
