* got it! requires: - a call to net_flow_max_flow on a per-user basis, with the user as the seed.
- return of node_in_degrees * node_flow because node_in_degrees tells you how many paths there are into the seed [the user]
consequence: if each user has flow in from other users at a level equal to or above their own (node_flow[level] == 1), and the number of paths (node_in_degrees[level] >= min_certs_reqd[level) to them is greater or equal to the number required to be certified at that level
overall, they are certified in the "general" trust metric at that level
the certification is accepted.
