Hand (parking) brake upgrade?

My rod type parking brake locked up on me this weekend and I'm wondering if it is practical and/or benificial to "upgrade" the components to a cable type system?

Any thoughts?

The xbrake is amazing. Uses a 200 or 300tdi cable

There are Defenders with rod actuated hand brakes?

It probably just needs to be cleaned and lubed.
