[aprssig] Why Not "Gate in Vicinity" (phones)

IGates don't send gated packets with their APRS-IS paths.  They are sent using third-party format.  Paths on APRS-IS have no meaning when gated to RF other than to determine if the packet originated on APRS-IS or on RF.

Sorry, this won't work either.  Remember, on APRS-IS there are no "smart phones"; there are only APRS-IS-connected clients and RF gated clients.  While the intent to have everyone's packets seen on RF seems noble on the surface, the implementation is not so noble.
