I've used the method before, especially when I was new to hydraulics brakes, just like you do with a car, basically. Here's a YouTube video by Marshy, the Santa Cruz Syndicate mechanic demonstrating it. As to the cheat method, all you do is simply pump the lever with the wheel/rotor removed and let the pistons move in slightly, then re-install like that to make the lever throw to contact much less - you also make the space between pads and rotors much less as well, so if you bend/warp your rotor, it will rub much easier.
