         But the whole problem is that "everywhere" isn't as congested the 
same, yet everybody wants to use the same 2-hop path all over the 
country.  People are ignoring the actual conditions and just changing to 
WIDE2-2 because "that's the new standard everywhere".

         I suspect we've just seen the first hard evidence that this 
subject wasn't thought through sufficiently before it was changed.
