Looking at my 93 crankset, it looks like one obvious approach would be to "skeletize" the triangular tabs of the triplizer to approximately match the cutouts in the crank spider. It would be necessary to go a little wide around the bolt holes, obviously. That would look fine on it's own, I think, though I'm not sure how it would look when everything was bolted together--might look kind of visually confusing/busy. But that would seem to make more sense to me than round holes or something like that.
