Line-drying, the forgotten art.

A long time ago somewhere on Metafilter there was a discussion about line drying versus machine dying clothes. In that thread, people cast aspersions on other peoples line drying skills because their clothes finished stiff. This is a question about stiff line drying. Specifically, HTF do I line-dry clothes and not have them end up like boards?

I don't use fabric softener, because it's nasty and because I'm one of those people with real sensitivities to perfumes. This isn't a problem in my machine, but I've finally gotten the back yard all perfect and it's eight bazillion degrees outside and dagnabbit I want to line dry my stuff.
I also want to wear it.
In case it matters, my washer is a front loading high-efficiency LG that almost dries the clothes enough to wear on its own.
