As long as we are talking about "new" routing options, why not throw in 
flexnet routing to overcome some limitations in the current internet 
for those that don´t know flexnet routing, it uses ax25 digiflields to 
indicate what node should ¨pick it up and what the destination node is.
With the digi software like digined we can have a path like 
flex,pe1dnn-2,max the digined that picks it up converts it to a path 
like pe1rdw-2*,pe1rdw,pe1dnn-2,max and sends it out the port where the 
flexnet compatible node is located (in this case loopback to tnn)
the node will pick it up, figure out what routing is best at that time 
and send it along that, when it comes out at the destination node 
(pe1dnn-2) it will look up max in it´s routing table, find it on the 
port to the digined digi, the digined digi picks up the max and converst 
that to the local max usable path.
with this system a user doesn´t have to ask the igate owner to add his 
call to the gate2rf list when he wants to keep his home hamgroup up to 
date on his progress
the current backbone still has it´s place offcourse for sending messages 
without knowing what the local digi is near the reciever and making it 
to findu
