I'm trying to, but I honestly don't devote a lot of time to 
understanding each shift of the new paradigm. History indicates it'll 
be different in a few weeks anyway.  Although maybe I should, since Tim 
is getting it turned on for the digis local to me - it's personal now. 
(:  I already see 3 L-digis locally.

OK, if it doesn't do WIDEn-n, then I assume it doesn't do duplicate 
suppression, right?  If not, what's the point?

Maybe it's for when the packet hits a WIDEn-n capable first instead of 
a deprecated RELAY and does some good that way?

and the WIDE2-1 gets me one hop, but not if it's via a RELAY/WIDE1-1.

Pretty much. (:
