yes, many people have asked about this, and it's probably something that
should be added to Ecasound sooner or later.

Unfortunately this cannot be done without at least small modifications to
the engine (to make sure no samples are lost in the switch). The probable
mechanism would be to extend the .ewf wrapper format to support splicing.
I added this to the development item list as item 'edi-42' (soon to be
added to CVS and the website). I cannot say at this point about the
schedule for implementation.

PS It seems that I didn't manage to release 2.4.4 this year... but
    sooner or later. I'm still planning to continue with a steady
    rate of 3-4 yearly releases in 2006...
PPS Happy New Year everyone! :)
