Default Prefill Oil Filter Housing

I was thinking of prefilling the oil filter housing, maybe half full of fresh oil with the new filter in place before reinstalling it. Has anyone done this without making a mess?

I always did this for engines that used canister type oil filters to reduce oil starvation time during the initial startup after the oil change.
