I think that you are thinking of Bob Harley, another member. That kind of thing just isn’t for me, though as my husband would happily quote (from Airplane I think) “It isn’t another woman is it? I just couldn’t compete with that.”
However, I have to agree with you otherwise. One of the things that I’ve noticed is that when I shift down into first through neutral (as a single action), there is frequently a double click.
