Hey! I got the same idea (but I'm short on time too).
What about a CW keyer deamon? cwkeyerd would listen on a TCP port,
and get chars from the socket. From a shell, the following
would do the trick:

   echo "CQ CQ CQ DE F8CFE F8CFE K K" | nc localhost 7373

There would be also an escape sequence to remotely change the speed and weights.
We can imagine some command line options or a config file to select the output
among the serial port, parallel port, sound card, Hamlib supported rig (e.g. 
TS2000, some Icom's), etc.

To make things a lot simpler and portable, the daemon will be implemented
totally in user mode. unixcw with its cwlib looks like a good starting point.

What do you think?
