So your saying I shouldn't write the BGP book for the 
venerable "for Dummies" series or push Linksys (AKA Cisco) 
to put a BGP announcement stub in their next line of High-End 
multi-port broadband routers.  The High-End ones are the 
$150 to $200 ones, not the cheap ones at $50 to $75.

Darn, there goes my master plan for 2010, NOT!!!  :)

You know the sad thing is some one will probablly do just that, 
and make a bunch of money at it too. :(
