I quite doubt that.  It's the sort of thing that's too clever for a
user interface.  User interface features are intended to be useful
without having to think more than when not using them.

Well, if there are any, they should speak up.  Personally, I find it
hard to get into your muscle memory to type $$ in order to get $$, and
then to type $ in order to get $$.

We might leave the current behavior as an option, but for keeping it
as a default, I want to hear more than theoretic rationalizations
(without them, the feature wouldn't even be there).  I want to hear
someone actually speaking up for (or against) it who is affected.
