Ken, you are describing an "open air" gabion..that's French for wire basket filled with lots'o'rocks. Gabions are wire mesh cages, like a box, filled with rubble, then the lid id wired down shut. Strawbalers place a layer of fine screening over that to keep bugs out, but if you placed cob over it it seems it would naturally hold well, fitting between crevaces. But be sure the water table won't rise to touch the cob/ I don't know much more, but have thought this was a great idea, since the rocks can't roll away or displace once in the gabion. not sure about the wire rusting. hope this helps.
