Proper ID While Using WSPR

I've been wspring for about a week now and pretty much have it all figured out.

One thing I am struggling with is how to easily ID every 10 minutes. WSPR, as far as I can tell, has no means of doing a proper ID itself which leaves it to the operator to switch modes, throw out a CW ID, and then switch modes back - all in the space of 6 seconds. Hard to do.

97.119 of the FCC rules states that ID must be done in CW, Voice, Image or RTTY. The call sign within the WSPR transmission itself appears to not qualify.

Any thoughts?
