searching for BGP table donors

Greetings all,

The fuss over shim6, routing table size, and long-prefix PI space has 
intrigued me.  I've started analyzing some [simulated] FIBs and believe 
I may have found something interesting.  In the name of statistical 
sampling, I'd like to analyze some other [simulated] FIBs from different 
BGP views.

Would anyone be interested in donating "show ip bgp" output?  I assume 
most people are familiar with script(1), but will mention it here, in 
passing, "just in case".  Compressed via bzip2 or rzip strongly 
preferred; there's a reason I'm not keen to try this on public route 
servers. ;-)

Email is fine for up to a few megabytes.  If anyone feels like sending 
output from so many routers that even a compressed tarball exceeds that, 
ping me to set up an FTP drop.

Network topology and size matter not.  "The more the merrier" when it 
comes to data analysis. :-)
