also consider: there is some implicit fish eye already build in: the packet 
loss will sum up when flooding the LQTC's from node to node. For example: with 
an ETX value of > 10 to a distant node, only very few LQTCs will make it...

Rule of thumb: Fish=On -> small LQ-Interval, Fish=Off -> longer LQ-Interval
