	Or until people who are still running multi-year old cisco code
actually upgrade?  This seems to primarily impact:

	1) Old cisco code
	2) PC based bgp daemons

	Both of which likely just need to be upgraded.  I actually suspect
that a lot of people who dropped their bgp sessions did not notice something
happened, and still will not upgrade their code.  I searched the archives, some
variations of this have happened since 2001.  There's been a few PSIRT and
other issues since then, I suspect these people don't even know they have a
bgp speaking device anymore.
