Did a mod on a strat for a friend and it turned out quite interesting. The mod was on Stewmacs site at wiring 101. It involves adding a 2P/DT micro switch.
In the centre position it acts as a kill switch. In the forward position it is played from the selector switch like a normal strat setup.In the back position it combines the neck and bridge pickup. Also if you put the selector in the middle position you have all three. Some interesting combinations and sounds from this mod. Here's a pic

I have something similar on my Strat but instead of a switch I use a push/pull volume control. When I lift up on it the neck pup is turned on so I get all possible Strat pickup positions. And as far as a kill switch goes, I simply turn the volume to 0. Works really well for me, and as a side benefit it leaves the pickguard stock.
