My first question is... what do you consider cold? 30° or are you talking -30°? If it's 30 or warmer, don't worry about it. If it's -10 or colder, you'd be smart to disconnect the battery and bring it inside. In either case, your best bet is to get a small maintenance type trickle charger and hook it up to your battery when it's going to sit for a while.
I've never heard that a rolling start would hurt a fuel injected engine. That's a new one to me. It's an interesting concept though. If the battery is so dead that it wouldn't power the injectors, i guess it would never start. Even at that, lubrication would be the concern rather than getting fuel to the cylinders. I still don't think it would hurt the engine unless you were pushing/pulling it for quite a ways.
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
