But Bill's point is that if you use WIDE1-1 as path, your WIDEN digi will 
light up all the WIDE1-1 fill-in digis there might be in range of it in 
addition to going one real wide hop from the next WIDEN-n.  If you do WIDE2-1 
as path, your high, wide digi will *not* cause those WIDE1-1 fill-ins to 
digipeat the packet.  A high digi causing low-lying fill-ins to digipeat is
not a desirable thing, it's meant to be the other way around.
