Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I also think that this is something to 
consider in the future. I think that many interesting ideas have been 
voiced on the mailing lists concerning an improved, configurable, and 
flexible metric that is a superset of ETX, and that weighting small 
packets different from larger packets is something that we should look into.

I fully agree that we should experiment with these things, but first I'd 
like to make the current link quality code stable, so that we have a 
good foundation from which to start.
