cannondale should make an adjustable seatpost

so i was just randomly thinkin bout adjustable seatposts (gravidy dropper, joplin), and the issues like the side to side wobble ect, and I was like wait why doesn't anybody do it with a square tube like the lefty, the lefty is super stiff but only has one tube, obviously it doesn't have side to side wobble. I don't ride a lefty and i'm not trying to say they are great forks or w/e, but this seems like a perfect application for the technology.

ok there i've said my piece

Would you want to try to weld a round tube to a square tube?

Hint: The leg on the lefty is octagonal.

They don't do it because they can get Chinese office chair parts for cheap!
