I came up with this idea also but found it to work intense for my case. 
Thanks for sharing.

If I would ever need such case I may better write a python script for 
doing the hard work.

However, it was just a test with a different type of "cloth" so I guess 
I will stick to a normal tablecloth to explain softbody cloth ;-)
