To make a regular shuffler in a DAW by a similar process
to Per's (and this is something I've learned from the discussion here)

Create 3 versions of the mix (2 channel)

A  unchanged
B  reverse channels L<>R and invert both
C  mono on both channels

Very  interesting, but I would say this is the same process I
Because summing A-B-C gives exactly the same result.

difference 1

your resulting mix has swapped channels because you invert A
  instead of B


A invert both
B reverse channels L<>R
C mono on both channels

difference 2
(both methods have further steps not detailed here)

you aren't defining that A and B should be mixed equally, that's important for creating what the user perceives unambiguously
   as a width control. (which I assume *isn't* what you want to do)

I guess your method works best for you,
not suggesting you should change it.
