Another thing that works (but you have to be careful) is to use an xacto 
knife to cut the leads using the uncut leads as a "stop". At the point 
most of the leads are cut, you can use a standard cutter to clip the 
last lead on each side.

(Still trying to figure out how this is related to chip equivalence.)
