If I had a pair to do that with it wouldn't be any trouble. I make them for my daughter so she has them. I only do gusseted socks for myself. Holes aren't a problem, that much I know. If I can figure out where I might have stashed a photo I'll share it with you. I might find something online about doing them this way.
Personally I would not like a "normal" sock with GSR or any other short row method. A normal short row heel is too tight for my feet. After the success I had with my latest sock (with 3/4 of the stitches for the heel flap) I am thinking about making a GSR heel with the same ideas. I would use far more than half of the stitches for the heel (maybe also here 3/4 of the stitches) and some increases before the heel and some decreases after. I think this might become comfortable.
Now all I am looking for is information on how to use GSR best in order to avoid holes.
