Well yes, I was thinking about versions with 4 separate wires, and
only after checking the isolation. BUT even in that case, I would
not trust the insulation between the two halves of primary as much
as the insulation between primary and secondary. You often have 
separate compartments for pri and sec, or a grounded shield winding 
I just saw this circuit of Eric and thought he might have done it that way,
and there might be transformers that have the necessary safety
insulation. Anyway, no use for that in Germany ...

Transformers like that show up from time to time. 
What I didn't say is that I have this habit of using toroidals only in all
gear, and I've never seen one of these with "tube" voltages.
