The details were different, but the goal was similar: wait a _short_ while & digipeat when no-one else had digipeated the packet.
It's also sounds similar to this:

15 sec would be a bit long - 5 sec would be plenty, even 3 is likely to fit in a number of cases
I'd be interested...

about it for many years, but the hardware wasn't available. Scott has
hardware that can do this, but sometimes getting a good grip on his
arm and twisting hard enough is difficult.
Then of course there's also the problem of people getting distracted,
and letting up on the pestering...
There are lots of good ideas floating around, but those who can
implement the concepts into the hardware are skittish about
experimenting. I understand why though... if you try something, and
people implement it wrong, then you can end up with a serious black
eye in the community. Kind of like opening Pandora's Box...
