Stretch? There's no way you can play this without moving your hand, so there's really no stretching involved. For me it's the picking hand that makes it harder.
I agree with the speed not mattering that much. It's still the best exercise I've ever seen because it's not boring but also not too hard that you can't even learn it.
Some people say to think outside the box.
I say do away with it. You can always stand in its former location if you need to make use of the perspective it gave you, but will benefit from the ability to situate yourself in different loci with ease.
Destroy the box.
