Ok, I missed this class.  This does sound like a very good idea,  
though smartbeaconing does reduce the number of packets as one slows  
down, but not after they stopped.

And I think I now see the simplicity of "Smart Pathing", though it  
may not be suitable for all situations.  And I think Allan has done a  
nice summary.
