Supporting a car with *only* 4 jackstands

Hey guys, I plan on doing some major work under my car here soon. In general all the mechanical work I've done I've always kept atleast 2 tires on the ground.

I really don't feel comfortable working under a car supported purely by 4 jackstands.... I fully understand it's very unlikely, but the possiblity of the car shifting, and toppling from the jackstands just bothers the hell out of me.

I am thinking about leaving 2 jacks at the front and rear center jack points to assist as a failsafe should the jackstands shift.

thoughts?
