    It doesn't seem like there'd be a comprehensive way of getting this to work. Depending on what kind of work you do anyways. Sure, make it so that your post outputs M7 for every 50 moves. Then you...

    If I were in your position I'd play with it a little bit. You'll have to change the post in the pretract post block. Like 13engines said, I would try to swap G28 for G53 and see if that does anything...
