	"All in good time my pretty..."
	We are working on the 192.x.x.x swamp right now.
	Rough estimates (with much more accurate data @ NANOG)

		60% - invalid or missing contact information
		25% - in use & unwilling to renumber
		15% - willing to renumber or return 

	This is from ~6,000 delegated entries.  If all goes well,
	we can find some new area to work on sometime in later this 

	Have any suggestions?  198.x.x.x?  The old /16 space?
