[aprssig] NWS SAME useful for APRS weather feed?

I agree and this could be easily accomplished IF the alternate servers
generate their feed from the same source as WxSvr and use the same code
so that the extra packets which enter APRS-IS will be duplicates of each
other and the APRS-IS servers will drop the dupes.  I have asked for
this scenario for at least the last 3 years now with nothing to show for
those requests.
