Default Dual-Deploy Engines??

THIS THREAD prompted my asking the question here, Is a dual-deploy time delay even possible for a single model engine?

Can you have a single initiator for two delay chains, maybe side-by-side, with two blow-through "tunnels" that would allow the "long-delay" charge to "by-pass" the short-delay charge and pressurize a separate compartment for the main recovery system?

Seems like we bounced this about a while back, maybe when the SVDT was first fired up.
