Good question, Alan. Maybe if we molded a flat "walking cane" arrangement
with a slight reverse angle wedge on the tip.  'Grab' the trailing edge
of the rudder with the reverse angle wedge and the 'walking cane' body
laying on the top surface of the wing. The hook would contour around the
leading edge of the winglet. This arrangement would help prevent the
rudder from deflecting outward. The reverse angle wedge could be several
inches high with a short 'reverse angle'.

This could be used with any of the rudder configurations.
