Default A8 paddle tuning

Is it possible to software-tune the operation of shifting paddles for the A8?

I'd like to include an easy way, in manual mode, to get to neutral quickly, rather than chance a bad shift by moving the lever to "N" in a difficult situation.

Something like pulling both paddles simultaneously toward the driver to grab neutral? Ferrari's F1 does that.

Most automatic accidents seem to result from the spinning tires hooking back up again when the car is pointed in the wrong direction. Grabbing neutral quickly, like with a manual transmission, would disconnect the spinning tires from the still-pushing motor and prevent that.
