I'd tend to agree on this, KISS is (suposedly) a uniform spec across all
(most) makes of TNC, so why use Converse mode for machine to machine comms, as
that changes even within one makers family of TNC on ocasions.

I tend to go with converse on my KPC3+ which along with the associated radio are
battery backed.  So when the power goes out, or the computer goes off into the
ozone, I still have a functioning digi for everyone else to use.  In KISS mode,
losing the computer turns a fully functional TNC into a power sucking brick
attached to a radio which serves no one.

Just my 0.02....
