Though please add the caveat that WIDE1-1 should only be used in the
FIRST path slot and no other.  Use WIDE2-1 in lieu of WIDE1-1 for
later slots so that the home digi's don't pick them up.

If WIDE1-1 is used in any of the 2nd to last slots it would be
similar to "WIDEn-N,RELAY", which we definitely don't want.
