"Go back to flat text files"    huh?

Hopefully folks aren't keeping track of their own assignments strictly
via SWIP.  I think most folks have an address management tool that
maintains a db of assignments and pushes that info to SWIP.

I always wondered why ARIN didn't offer a web based address management
tool/service (as in pay extra for it) for folks who didn't want the
hassle of maintaining a db/tool.  Something that would let users
create and maintain subnets and specific assignments to
customers/hosts, in a private portal, with more details than get
published in SWIP.  I thought this would come with the deployment of
the ARIN Online portal.
