I don't think this is possible, as it is, yet. If you are short of disk
space, then perhaps you can try to record the vocals in multiple different
1. start monitor-track with -y:0, record vocals until to a suitable point
(say 30 seconds).
2. cut the silence off from the beginning of the new vocal track with a
suitable tool (ecawave?).
3. make an ewf file of the new vocal track with 'offset' of the length of
the cutted part of wave (+value of the -y option).
4. repeat step 1 with -y option value 30.
5. repeat steps 2-3
6. automate the process if possible
Bit laborsome, but possible.

As far as I can see, the -y option or ewf file's options don't work on
