What if some good comes from this "root kit"?

For instance, what if it lets us fix things like DOM on non-Cisco
XENPAKs and SFPs?  Or lets us un-cripple our 6500 chassis to run the
code we want?

Of course, given the messenger, I'm sure it's just hype to help
bolster Gadi's security practice, and will prove to be no big deal.
