Hmm.  <looks around AS1312>  2 /16s, I'll be *generous* and say 100 interfaces
that have full routing tables (it's actually probably closer to a dozen).

But I have *at least* 30K user machines on my network that will all either
be stuck on XP or buying a gigabyte or two each for Vista.  Even if my 100K
is off by a factor of 5 or even 10, that's still just a *pimple* on the RAM
sales that will happen even if Vista *flops*.
