I was thinking more of the buffer for the packets being held for
delayed digipeating.  Matti's web page refers to a "4-8 second" hold,
which sounds reasonable in operation, but that means a worst case of
up to eight 256 byte packets, or 2k RAM.  Even a minimum 4s hold is 1k
of buffer space.  This is all in addition to the dupe hash table.
