This seems like a solution in search of a problem. What problem are
you actually trying to solve? Start by describing it, then we can try
dreaming up ways to solve it. [Given your vague description of what
this would accomplish, I have a few guesses about what you might be
trying to do, and I think there are probably less intrusive and more
effective approaches].
