I don't mean using the t-test p-values to help calculate the permutation
p-values at all, just that they can sometimes be a good shorthand for
how-clustered-are-the-subjects'-accuracies in the early stages of
analysis. The variance of the subjects' accuracies can also be useful
for this, of course.
