V-Brake Compatible Top Mount Brake Levers?

I would like to install some top-mount brake levers on my drop down bar (a la cyclocross), but the bike uses v-brakes (not mini-V) with dia-compe 287V levers (yes, it is a Trek 520). I do not want to install the "travel agents" to compensate for cable pull. Does someone make pass through leveres that can work with V-Brakes?

There's these ones, which I own but never got to use. They work with both canti and V brakes, depending on the placement of a pin.
