[TCML] Primary design question for minimum radius

I'm rebuiding my primary (and other parts), with the intent of using a larger diameter tube (going from 1/4" to 3/8"). It would be very convenient to use the same primary footprint I'm currently using, and feel I could do this with the larger tubing, but would like to have some margin of unused turns for flexibility in components. 
So my question to the group relates to primary turn stacking. I'm considering stacking 2 to 3 layers of 1/4" tubing (to resemble a ribbon versus a single, larger diameter, round conductor) into each slot of the structure. Looking at increase power, efficiency, etc, and think this may be a way to keep the radius constrained, while improving the performance.
Thoughts and experiences of this from the group?
