Having just done so under the latter case, I have a couple of questions,
ok, one question derived from two cases:

1.  One of our customers said something about trying to get an end-user
block and couldn't.

2.  I thought /32, i.e. 4 billion networks, was insanely large for us
and we're an ISP (albeit a small regional).  I'd asked for a /48 and was
told that /32 was the minimum being given out (which I can almost
understand, actually, though I think /40 would have still been plenty).

What is actually being handed out now?
