That is already there for usb dongles. From the sample usbradio.conf:

txtoctype=notone	; Transmit tone control type: no,phase,notone
			; no - CTCSS tone encoding with no hang time
			; phase - encode CTCSS and reverse phase
			; AKA ("reverse burst") before unkeying TX
			; notone - encode CTCSS and stop sending tone before unkeying TX
			; AKA ("chicken burst")

But while we're at it here's a really nifty one I've always liked that
Motorola & GE
radios have had for years..

( CTCSS reverse burst aka STE Squelch Tail Elimination)


I might even work at this myself sometime..
It's not a very important feature it's just a nifty one.
Just thought I'd throw the idea out there for fun..
Also if any folks are not familiar with this that's a good like to  
check out
and learn a tidbit about it.

I've also been spoiled for a long time using Motorola stuff and not ever
hearing a squelch tail :-)
