Perhaps I'm missing something but I don't understand your point. 
One Newton is the force of earth's gravity on an object with a mass
of 102 g, so we're talking about a force of 20 grams per meter.
A meter long toothpick wade of WOOD inserted ever meter to act as
a spacer to keep the wires the proper distance apart would be far 
stronger than necessary.
