What is you question?
-Is this the best?
-what is the best?

dont know to both. :D I guess it depends on what you want to model (for example i want to draw a load of lines and turn them into walls.) I think for a level this would be crap.

You can do the same thing on every 3d modelling program out there.

On 3d Max, texture any plane, use splines, extrude, smooth, voilá. I bet Blender (or any other program) has similar features.

Also, on the second link you can see the ammount of polygons generated by this method... a little too much for game usage, imho :P
