Which RIPE engine?  I think that there may be two - a whois server
(which runs off of the RIPE database) and a route server.

Both of these are actually applications of the registry - the whois
server is a way of querying the registry; the route server is a more
specialized application.

[I think that the RIPE folks are off at a meeting this week...]
