Vadim.  I am just a stoopid operator with a network to run.  I am not at all
cheered by trading a tool that works for a theory that could be designed and
implemented some day.

Until inter-NOC operation is facile, we have few tools for debugging inter-
provider routing problems.  So we use what we have although we realize that
they have flaws.

Not to discourage you and others from developing better tools.  Please!
