How did this turn out?

I'm doing a similiar thing in my crawlspace, although I'm only dropping 1' under the footings. The 'retaining wall' that I poured around the perimeter is 4-5" thick, with two bands of horizontal rebar, and vertical rebar 16"OC (I also drilled holes and epoxied the tops of the vertical rebar into the footings to make sure that the wall wouldn't 'bend in').
Seems like it should be pretty solid, but it's definately unorthadox. I doubt if you could get any engineer or building offical to put their stamp of approval on it!
