Is there some significant barrier to people getting recent code on the  
devices that is not impacted by this and the other fun bgp 'attacks'  
that can happen?  We usually see customers drop bgp sessions all over,  
making me wonder ... if you're not able to upgrade, what is the  
issue?  Just that most people don't see these as an attack against  
their infrastructure?  That people are unwilling to upgrade code  
unless it has a long-term impact to their operations?  An outage once  
every few months is OK?
