And 3.7 began support for BGP4.  I'm still waiting for someone to share
the results of the analog of 'sh ip bgp sum'.  According to a very
loquacious Lucent advocate for whom I have a good deal of respect, the
PM3 will take 4 full views on 16Meg, with room to breathe.  Purely out
of curiosity, has anyone seen this in action?
