That's a good trick, depending on the vocal, song, etc. I occasionally use a chorus plug on a send, with the mod set to fairly deep and slow. That allows you to blend the vocal stereo effect, and control the width. You can insert a delay ahead of the chorus, too, if you want to delay the pitch shifted bits a little, to retain some clarity and improve mono compatibility. You can also put a LPF on the channel, if the consonants are sounding too weird.

I used to use a plug designed for pitch shifting, but it wasn't compatible with the Intel Macs, so had to retire it!

You can also use this trick on bass guitar, if you want a very wide deep bass sound. Again, mono compatibility will be compromised, so some eq may be necessary!

I used to use MDA Detune, but it wasn't available as a Universal Binary for a while. It now appears to be, so I'll try it again!

I've also done the trick by duplicating the lead vocal onto three tracks, leave the middle one along, detune the left a few cents lower, the right a few cents higher, delay the right one a few ms more than the left, you can modulate the delay time and pitch shift if you want, though I don't usually. If I want modulation, I'll do as I mentioned above with a chorus effect.

I actually like using the Pitch Shifter II that comes with Logic Pro 9. It has always worked fine for me.
