On a related note, I was looking around today for selective prepend 
examples to show prospective providers and either I can't find it, or C&W 
has pulled the docs for their selective prepend communities from their 
infopage site.

I found this kind of funny since Sprint has actually expanded on their 
selective prepend documentation, even listing now the peers that it works 
with.  That used to be "secret" information you had to get directly from 
someone with clue at Sprint.

I was going to use these URLs as examples when I asked the MFN sales rep
if MFN supported such a thing...but he hasn't returned my call yet.
