I was thinking just the first bit.  But again, I think your
idea is better, because yours would work in the case
of any pre-emptive digipeaters picking up on anything
in the path.  So I agree with you above...

Ah yes,  you are right.  That too...

That should be a separate function like you suggest.  Some times
that might be applicable, and sometimes not...  But would be
nice for fill-in digis that would not have to also digipeat the
packet if the other digi already did...  problem is what is the
delay?  Hummh....
