Now, this is an interesting question!  The correct answer is "We don't know",
as this technology has never been tried.  However, it is likely that a pileup
will cause all sorts of problems (like no one getting through).  That's my
educated guess.  However, it all depends on the implementation of the digital
system, so anything's possible.

This could be one area where analog will retain an advantage.  But, as they
say, there's only one way to find out, build some digital gear and see what
happens. :-)
