The -enm: gate has the logic you need. Use the hold parameter to keep
the window from closing unless the silence is xx ms long. The -enm: gate
won't actually shorten the file, which is what I think you're trying to
do. But using -enm: to do the thinking and -ge: to do the work is
probably your best bet. The next would be to use -gc but that's more
work, and really only suitable if you only need to do this a few times.
I hacked ecasound to add a retriggering gate that is fed from a non
truncating noise gate, and it does this kind of stuff nicely.
