New stud primitive (underside)

New stud primitive (underside)
The recently uploaded Mini Snake brought the idea about preventing (auto-)connectivity issues of LDraw related software. The part contains an simple underside stud, but none of the existing stud primitives can be used without a lot of tweaking of the original part shape (see comment about stud4o.dat).
The basic idea is to "convert" the 4-4cylc to a new stud primitive, and then use it instead of the cylc. This step is not forced by the LDraw Standard, but the more i think about it, the more i'm convinced that this last step is worth to be done. If it becomes official, i doubt it will ever be done.
I attached the prototype of that new underside stud. As i have no idea how to name and describe it, help me please to complete it.
