I'll be happy to help offline, just let me know.  Prepending
may or may not make a difference; it provides added "push",
but it's quite weak (ie, low priority in BGP's preference
decision process).

Shameless plug: BENTO (http://www.networksignature.com) would help
you identify hot source ASs; a little further investigation would
then reveal if they route through AS6939 in the general case (though
admittedly that would be strange).
