computer aided manuel transmission

In addition to a rear mounted Mustang transmissions, Ford should try to create a system that changes gears through a computer like an automatic, but only through user control. For example, through hand shifters placed on the steering wheel, the driver could manually select a gear, but instead of moving the gear himself, an electrical signal sent to the ECU directs the transmission to change the gears, in order to allow for quick and easy gear changes, without sacraficing the extra control, and feel of a manual transmission. The clutch activation should remain unaltered to ensure a manual feel. This should increase overall performance, and drivability, while also increasing safety, since the hand shifters will decrease the need for the driver to take his/her hands off the wheel. This would be a great addition to any Ford vehicle with a manuel transmission.
