PTT input serves double duty as straight key input in CW mode?

I love my new Flex-6400, and have "broken out" the I/O's from the DB-15 so I can get access to the non-keyer supported "key" input. I wonder why the RCA PTT input can't do double duty in CW mode as a straight key input. The user could just attach a "Y" cable to his/her straight key and foot switch. Russ KD4JO

That's the way my TenTec rigs worked, and it wouldn't require switching the keying mode in software then to make that work.   I vote YEA!
