Well the way I'm putting it to my Cisco rep is "Why should I invest in 3BXLs
instead of another vendor's solution?"  I'm saying this repeatedly.  Maybe
they'll get the hint.

I won't throw away the 7604s...I could totally redeploy them in my corporate
infrastructure.  At this point they really are Cat 6500s.  I don't mind if
they make a 7600-only train as long as the 7600s can still run 6500 code
then at least it makes them useful.  Just not as edge routers.  I bet
Juniper is lulzing this hardcore.
