A couple years ago we (NWAPRS) realized that a short TRACEn-N path
provided more information (then WIDEn-N) and less dupes (then WIDE,WIDE)
so that became the recommended standard in the region.

This is the same as Bob's current suggestion of changing WIDEn-N
functionality to the old Trace mode...   Same plan - just the name
is different.  Could it be that once again the NWAPRS was years
ahead?   :-)
