Right, essentially.  This is particularly easy if all the
attributes are the same, notably the AS_Path.

In IOS there is already a pretty good set of tools to choose what
one proxy-aggregates -- and how -- that were developed several
years ago; a tool to choose when to apply a set of these would also
be useful.

One policy that I think would be useful would be: "Does the origin
AS announce more than N prefixes?  If so, aggregate/drop more specifics
as follows..."
