Nested infixes

A bright good evening travels over the net! :-)))))))))

I am currently thinking about having roots of the form CVCV into which I
intend to insert an infix of the form VC right before the final vowel of the
root. But if there is more than one affix to apply to the root, all further
affixes are then inserted after the leading vowel of the first affix.

Obviously, this may sound weird and I am quite interested whether anybody
has already done such a twisted morphology and/or which natural language (if
any at all) makes use of such a pattern.

Cheers and thanks,
