Oh yeah, and actually to be more accurate, it'd have to check APRS IS and
see if the packet *really* went from RF to IS.
Maybe that's an idea? But that would require that digipeater to have IGate
functionality, or at least be able to listen to APRS IS. That could
perhaps, improve the QRM even more? And it wouldn't stop NOGATE or RFONLY
from digipeating again...

I do however think that this problem can be improved, so to speak, with
tactical positions of digipeaters. So that every fillin would be able to
hear at least one high level digipeater (actually, why set up a fillin if
you can't reach a high level digipeater?) but wont be able to throw the
packet to too many high levels (decrease TX power perhaps if necessary?)

This may need some thinking, hi hi.
