Bypass oil filtering on a diesel 300tdi or 2.8TGV?

Anyone using a bypass oil filter or filtration system on their diesel? Is it worth doing, or is it snake oil? Apparently fleet trucks have been using them for years (with oil analysis) and it allows for extended drain intervals.

I don't know much about this topic, but I figured I'd ask around and see if anyone is doing this, and if they've seen any value to it.

Or any downsides?

I don't know how well it works on a diesel, but I had an Amsoil bypass filtration system on my 1997 D90 LE and put over 200k miles on it with no motor work at all, still ran great the day I sold it.
