man, i need a spell check badly.

As long as the cans are unopened, the inside pressure will keep them from collapsing under weight. (Having said that, even the empty cans shouldn't collapse under direct pressure, only when a bit of twist is applied.)

i suppose that if the can were somehow designed to resit outward collapse, meaning that the sides of the can could only collapse inward, then the pressure of the soda might prevent collapse under wieght. but sheer forces arent so easily controlled. i guess that a small groove on the outer side of the can that spiraled around the can starting at the top lip, wrapping around once, to finish at the bottom lip could acheive that. but still again it would add to the cost of the deleivery device since the can would have to be a thicker mill than normal to accomodate a slight groove yet still maintain integrity. what ever is come up with design whys, would have to be as cheap or cheaper than traditional methods or no one will use it, even if a design adds .01 cent to the cost of each can, producers will shy away from it.
