I've even seen very small discrete resistors made into 'resistor
networks' in that fashion in production applications (limited
production). I've made 'network resistors' in this fashion in the past.

There are also little surface-mount-pad boards commercially available
that have a single SIP row of pins along one end, on which you could
mount chip resistors. I can't remember a brandname on those little
boards, but I think they're a common item you can find in DigiKey.

But the leaded-resistor solution is much more practical and probably
