[aprssig] The final WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 solution!

I am proposing that any digis that are still needed as FILL-IN
digis that switch to the WIDE1-1 mechanism, that they use
the "1" overlay.  We were using the "1" slightly differently
before for the enforced one-hop digis in LA, but maybe
this new use of the "1" is the more common.  I wonder if we
should come up with another descriptor for the ones in LA?

Having slept on it overnight (and hardly sleeping at the
excitement) I'm still very excited about this solution to
the RELAY and WIDE dupe problem and the fill-in
problem.   Just everythig comes up roses... (though we
may need some tweaking in LA)

1) All legacy paths are dropped.  Everything is simplified
2) User recommendations are simple and consistent
3) We still get a  universal one hop (WIDE1-1 simply replaces RELAY)
4) ALL paths use the perfect n-N dupe-elimination
5) We can still use fill-in digis and they can be dumb TNC's
6) Each digi can now have 4 traps from 7-7 to 4-4 if they want...
7) PacComm digis work seamlessly with WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1

Once we get the 13 year old mess cleaned up to this new
n-N Paradigm, then we will have a consistent baseline on
which to begin to develop the network ideas of Pete and
many others as we can get people to upgrade digis to
new hardware or software, because then we only have
one consistent legacy to have to deal with...

Am I dreaming or are we onto something here....?
