      Ron,
      I have a question regarding your method of control here. You
      write..

      <snip>
      "This works because I lock routes for the nodes I want at
      > higher values."
      <end snip>

      My question being, if you "lock" a route, don't you continue to
      broadcast that route/node combination even if it is offline?
