[aprssig] Paths - Solution proposal

What I have suggested would not eliminate
"source" routing, but only be a better/smarter
system based solution for "generic" paths.
- A specific source routed packet could be given
HIGHER priority based upon that alone.
- Think if you were in DC, but needed to "flood"
or try to flood packets a few 100 miles away.
- You could "source route" to that area
(with the highest priority) and then "flood" from that point around.
I like the idea.
