[App_rpt-users] change function stanza

How about calling an external script that just writes over the sound

I keep a ulaw file which contains 250ms of silence on each repeater for
that purpose. For example, my weather script creates ulaw files that are
used as squelch tail files. If there aren't any weather events, the
script copies the silence files to the tail files. When there's an
event, it uses Cepstral to create the tail file. That way the tail files
still play but no one notices it.

You could have your external script copy the effects files somewhere.
Copy the silence file into each of their places. Then when you return
from the net, copy the originals back into place.
Like this :
 On start : cp foo.ul ./Archive/foo.ul
                  cp bar.ul ./Archive/bar.ul   
                  cp silence.ul foo.ul
                  cp silence.ul bar.ul

On return cp ./Archive/foo.ul foo.ul
                  cp ./Archive/bar.ul bar.ul

You get the idea.
