This is the only weakness immediately obvious to me: it requires fairly 
extensive configuration of _all_ digis for anything to work properly 
beyond one hop.

This could make it difficult for, say, an SAR team to whip out the 
portable digi in the incident area, or bringing up a quick replacement 
digi if something happens to a main digi for an area.  Any sort of 
"quick and dirty" digi setup would be more complicated than "take it 
out of the box and turn it on".

To effectively use this I think we'd need a protocol for learning the 
local topology and a self configuring digi to match.
