that's a good suggestion, bhyke. in fact, i did attempt to do that because it would have allowed me to use a spare top-pull diacompe dual-pivot brake i had in the bin. the problem is, the cross-brace has a large hole drilled through it horizontally as a fender mount. i didn't want to drill a vertical hole through for fear of weakening and damaging the brace. i tried some other klugey nonsense to get it to work, but ultimately i had no luck.
