    Have you seen the whipping techniques on Jeff's site?

    doing what you are talking about would be no different than just sewing a hem with the hammock fabric itself and running the line through that. there would be no advantage to using webbing. the line is stationary in there so there is no worry of abrasion even with just the simple hem. and with both, all your weight is on the stitch holes in the hammock fabric, which will be the weak point no matter what is beyond, webbing or just ripstop hem. standard whipping creates a mass of fabric and you lash a girth hitch around it which the mass cannot slip through. the stitch holes are not loaded with weight which is the advantage of whipping.
