[aprssig] Bob, Address the WIDE7-6 Possibility

That's more or less what I'm wanting to do. I run a RELAY-only digi right
now, and while I need to cover a hole in my area, it's a small enough hole
that I don't want to digi any more than the absolute minimum.

I'm running UI-View, and hopefully some settings may come out that'll let me
accomplish my goal. Until then, RELAY-only it is.

Yet another tweak:  Digipeat after a delay of XX seconds, but only if the
packet hasn't been digipeated during that delay (first callsign in the
digipeater field hasn't been used, or the SSID of a WIDEn-N hasn't been
decremented yet).

They'll remain quiet most of the time, except when needed.
