In case of home stations configured as WIDE, they would digipeat packets
previously digipeated for WIDE, high digis, too. Maybe they can increase
channel load in some areas.

In Europe some experiments were done around UIDigi "local digi" feature. In
such digipeater, if packets are first heard (not previously digipeated) it
acts normally. Otherwise, if packets were previously digipeated, they are
digipeated too, but digi chain is modified and cut in order to don't be
further digipeated.

Just another approach.
