Why do you want to suggest something that is so rational, sensible and easy to do...and ruin all of our fun.
My advice - attach the topping lift to the boom with a bowline, whip the tail end to the standing part for neatness, and nobody will ever recognize that you saved yourself a lot of time and aggravation (except you...).

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
