	that would be you.  

	in 1989, i built a 6,000 node network w/ 400 subnets
	out of that address range.  worked a treat.  since then
	the UNIX fascists have tightened their grip on what
	the enterprising admin can do w/ that portion of the 
	address map.

	now seems mostly good for things like NTP
	and "host" addresses, not tied to any specific interface.

	still useful for some of us.
