I've met Justine and can vouch for her serious, laser-focused interest 
in middlebox research, and that if she's not really attending Cal then 
she's bamboozled a whole heap of CS profs over there.

But seriously, if you can help her ascertain real middlebox use cases 
she wants to help improve that segment of networking via useful 
research, nothing more or less.
