[#t] is an abstraction, and it's hard for abstractions to behave like that
because they have to do dynamic patching at [initbang] time (this doesn't
work with vanilla).
Do you want to try making such changes to that abstraction ? :)
BTW, [#t] is often not needed : you can use [t a a] most of the time ;
[#t] is only for when you really need the right-hand copy to be finished
sending before the left-hand copy begins. This happens rather often, which
is why [#t] exists, but it doesn't happen so often.
For cases where [#t] currently has to be chained like [#t]/[#t]/[#t]/....,
your idea could save a lot of RAM, as it would be making a single backup
of the grid, instead of multiple backups.
