Dual [Duel] Brake

There are many dual brake set-ups floating around, everything from in-line splitters to stacked levers and twin cable levers but the one above has to be a favourite. Simple construction and no specialised parts [ok, the plate and pin are]. I am however a little concerned about the durability as the plate and its mounting are likely to flex due to the staggered brake activation.
What I really want it an integrated dual lever with one clamp mount and staggered, independent levers. 2 fingers for the rear and 1 for the front, I might even revisit my brief flirtation with a thumb lever. I'm sure there are options already the market but I'm not about to invest the google time right now [go forth and seek my trusty gear freaks!]
