The change is made at a very low level in the program (the actual CW sending 
state machine).  Essentially if it receives a "command from above" to stop
sending NOW - it will look to see if you have the WAIT UNTIL END OF CHARACTER
flag set.  If you do, it will wait until is sees a cw "element" come up that 
looks like a character space (or word space) and stop sending then.

I could add another layer of flexibility that allows "above" to indicate if 
it should wait for the delay or not...  but that would require me to go find 
every instance that calls the stop sending command (which I think is in a lot
of places) and decide which ones need to stop right away and which ones can

Not sure I will get inspired to do that - but you never know.
