TR-Log already has this feature.  I find it useful in the sweepstakes.
The sweepstakes is the only contest where I tell the other station 
calling in he is a dupe.

There are several ways but the easy way is to enter the call in the 
call field and then hit the tab key to get to the excahge field and 
then just log him from there in S&P mode.

Of course, we had to beta test them in the WPX.
