This is only true for a pure software routing. With a protocol tailored
towards geodeting routing you can select on the fly the space cone you
repeat to. It would require a very short FIFO if one at all (header bits
could select directions as they're consumed, of course you're forced to
drop the packet or switch to store-and-forward from cut-through if there's
a lock on that link already).
Um, any MUC FoRKers around? I'd be interested in becoming a node.
