Only hacks do that.

That is definitely a good work-around if you can't get it working via 
"normal" methods.  A manual choke, basically.

To allay your fear of hurting the ECU... disconnect the CSV from the 
ECU.  The 12 volts is constant, the ECU switches the ground, so make it 
so there is only one ground - your switch.
