Hi Matt,  Bart,
     what about a spring loaded solenoid?  At the same moment(or phase
delayed even) the gap fires, the solenoid pulls back the electrode.  
Going a step further, you could have all of the electrodes pulled apart
simultaneously so the total gap spacing would be drastically altered while
no single electrode has to move very far.
  Hi Matt,

That's doable. It all happens pretty fast. It might be difficult to 
electrically control a switching mechanism, but probably wouldn't need 
it. If one can imagine say a cylinder tcbor style static gap, the 
initial tap could be simply switched to the next electrode after some 
predetermined time.

Take care,
