I agree -- this gets your recovery arm back into the water in a shorter time than completing the pull. I tried that once but didn't get the hang of it. If I understand it correctly, the 'tempo' through the water is different than through the air.
It's kind of like walking with a normal stride on the left step and a giant stride on the right step -- try it.
