I've looked into IRR several times, usually after events like PCCW. 
Each time the amount of work to 1) figure out how to implement IRR and 
2) actually implementing it far outweighed the benefit of doing it for 
my network.  I would love to implement it and looking towards the future 
I will someday have to.  Until it becomes much easier to do so, I don't 
foresee smaller SPs like myself allocating the necessary resources to an 
IRR project until we're forced to because of our individual growth or an 
idiot PCCW-type event that generates lots of bad PR.
