Sorry, but I think this is a very bad idea.  If we're talking about a
very small "network" where there is only one digi and everyone on that
network can live with a 3 minute latency, it may be OK.  for a general
APRS network, it's a disaster.  Mobile stations may ping-pong every
three minutes if two such digis were out of sync on their 3 minute

Improving bandwidth and throughput is great, but if such latency is
the cost, it's not really helpful to a "real time tactical network."
