Yeah, I thought and mean exactly about the new packet type ("result").
Of course not ordinary exec-packet.

Should so! I am honestly do not know why I artificially limited ability
to "reroute" those packets. Possibly becase I assumed that the
originator of the packet forcefully wants *exactly* that nodes to
participate during the transmission? Possibly someone forcefully do not
want some node to see some packets (even their sizes)? But anyway noone
has any guarantees about delivery path, so why bothering? It is like
SMTP: you can send email to the server via forced TLS, but after that,
you have no abilities to control if TLS is used at all.
