-		 * The next two functions overwrite the behavior of the stock functions and do not perform equivalently, except

-		 * 
-		 * The stock implementation of GetTransmitterScore (which I cannot override) is:
-		 * 		Score = (1 + DataResourceCost) / DataRate
-		 * 
-		 * The stock DataRate and DataResourceCost are:
-		 * 		DataRate = packetSize / packetInterval
-		 * 		DataResourceCost = packetResourceCost / packetSize
-		 * 
-		 * So, the resulting score is essentially in terms of joules per byte per baud.  Rearranging that a bit, it
-		 * could also look like joule-seconds per byte per byte, or newton-meter-seconds per byte per byte.  Either way,
-		 * that metric is not a very reasonable one.
-		 * 
-		 * Two metrics that might make more sense are joules per byte or joules per byte per second.  The latter case
-		 * would look like:
-		 * 		DataRate = packetSize / packetInterval
-		 * 		DataResourceCost = packetResourceCost
-		 * 
-		 * The former case, which I've chosen to implement below, is:
-		 * 		DataRate = packetSize
-		 * 		DataResourceCost = packetResourceCost
-		 * 
-		 * So... hopefully that doesn't screw with anything else.
