[aprssig] Q: Digi behavior for APRS vs. Packet

  Do current digis handle the 'old fashioned' Packet packets the same as they used to, or are they tailored only for APRS?  I thought normally TOCALL'ed packets were handled the old way, or do all/many/some APRS client/digis hack them up some how?  Intentionally or inadvertently.
 I was curious and wrote that FJ-9 fella aswking what he was doing.  He took several emails to convince to shorten his path (when he is outside "his network" in which he and his buddies "send encrypted data"), but says his standard Packet "picture" packets get shortened by the "APRS digis"  (don't know why he brought this up).  He was't complete in explaining.
