Amen, 2.2 allows no flexibility in digipeater fields (Limits to
1 or 2?), which would completely fail with APRS.  After the
first hop, an APRS packet typically can look like this:


Which would violate the 2.2 spec and die...
On the next hop, it would use up 4 digi fields.


And surely fail.  Since the 2.2 writers are "opposed" to
digipeating (which of course is the foundataion of APRS)...
