Are there firewire cable kits similar to cat-5 kits?

In my ongoing struggle against cable clutter, I've been on the lookout for short firewire cables. At both work and home I have stacks of firewire drives, and the one to three foot cables that they come with are far longer than is necessary. Since these drives are almost always daisy chained and stacked on top of each other, I think there's a real market for four or six inch firewire cable, but it's nowhere to be found. Am I missing an obvious source? Are there firewire cable kits similar to cat-5 kits?

fwdepot is your friend. 6" cables.

I'm not aware of roll-your-own FW cable kits, though it sounds like a good idea.

My dad is a real nut for Tigerdirect. I think they have retractable firewire cables.
