I've been hearing conflicting stories about the Ascend GRF lately.
Cisco claims that it doesn't really work as advertised in "realistic
networks," but Ascend says this is because Cisco's routers melt down
when the GRF feeds them routing table updates, so the GRF has to be
throttled back to work in a mixed environment.

Does anybody have any real experience here?  Any information, pointers,
anecdotes, or wild rumors would help.
