Nice idea, but it does not work for me. I just tried it on OS X
(Carbon vim 6.0) and I recall having this problem on Os 8.x. It looks
as though "t" is already part of the default for 'shm', I already have
'ch' set to 2, and there is plenty of room for the message. It just
feels like making me hit the <CR>. :-(

I get "Hit Enter" on OS X.
