I happen ask my stringer about tentioning every other string since you brought it up. He said the stringer should string evey string. This is because if it's done every two, there will be friction loss. The other reason is in reality, the tention of the racket will not be accurate because it will be off(lower tention).
People have claimed that constant tention pull would able to get around it, but the issue would be the enlongation since it will be on every two instead of every one.

desired string tension + X
where X is the additional tension required so that when the tension of the final 2 pieces are propagated to the other pieces, the string bed would attain the desired string tension as a whole. I have no idea what X should be. Perhaps those interested in saving time would like to experiment and find out what X is. There is gold in them X's.

Why isn't the time to settle proportional to the number of strings?
i.e. 1 string => time=x
2 string => time=2x
3 string => time=3x
If you pre-stretch how does it affect this time?

I think pulling two or more strings, whether on the mains or crosses, with one pull is utter nonsense. It can never come close to pulling each individual string.
If you are a perfectionist, you might want to increase tension slightly on the longer strings vis-a-vis the shorter strings. This applies equally if you use more tension on an iso racquet vs an oval racquet, because at the same tensions an oval racquet will feel tighter than an iso racquet due to its shorter strings.
Now pulling two strings in one pull is something of a joke, no?

1 string = 15~20 sec
2 strings = 25~35 sec ( I tension for 10 sec, clamp, then tension again)
3 strings > 1 min (I tension 3 times)
These are just my observations from my experiment. There is no scientific reason behind it.
