Should not digi. I think UIDIGI does this - decrementing from WIDE2-1 to 
WIDE2 and not marking it as used. Also, if a WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 packet is 
first converted to DIGI1*,WIDE2-1 by a callsign-substituting fill-in digi, 
a second-hop UIDIGI will digipeat that with a resulting path of 
DIGI1*,WIDE2.
