Sorry, this strikes me as a very random solution to a very particular
problem. Tomorrow someone comes with a patch to do an implicit \a during
\g -- what letter does he take?
You say \x\g\x is too much typing? Propose a macro processor. You don't
like the messages that are printed? Propose a switch to turn them off.
Or you could make a "conditional \x" that automatically switches to \x
format if there are more than a certain number of columns in the result
