[ExI] skyhook elevator

It occurs to me (can't recall ever seeing this discussed, although it 
must be an ancient sub-topic of skyhook dynamics) that as your elevator 
climbs or is a shoved up the thread, you'd not only be pressed against 
the floor but also against the west wall. Maybe you wouldn't notice if 
the trip took a couple of days, but you're going from rest to 11,000 
km/hr. Is that especially noticeable? What say the space gurus?
