Default More than 5 inserts in serial for chain of effects - How?

I just ordered Waves. As a guitarist, I own about 15 stomp boxes, and some rack gear, and the signal chain can be lengthy.
By switching to Waves, I want to use the digital effects (and do some tweaking to reproduce some of the vintage pedals we all adore) and create a similar chain.
Now, ProTools LE only has 5 inserts per channel, but I would like to do possibly more than that in serial.
So I was thinking to do the following:
1. Create a mono audio track for my guitar.
2. Create 3 Aux channels, and have the input of the second one come from the output of the first one, and same for 2 and 3. I could then have as many as 15 effects in serial.
To be funkier, I could probably do some parallel stuff as well, but not sure how?
Has anyone experimented with this, and more importantly, what solution creates the least amount of noise?

3 Auxs should work but if you record the ending signal they get recorded.

However, if you create 2 audio channels for recording the same signal and get 1 of the inputs to record the ending signal from 3 auxs and the other directly from input, you can change things later. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
