"Most contest logging software allows"

That statement was not true from the advent of the IBM PC circa
1983 and thefirst widely-used contesting program, CT on MS-DOS.
CT set the standard that the CW signal was on DTR and nowhere
else (well, also on pin 17 of an LPT port to be complete.)

Its only in the past few years that ham software writers decided
that there just was not enough complexity in setting up contesting
software and decided to add new options.

WriteLog is confusing enough already and has no such option.
