Are you responding directly to my post via an automated filter, or am I
the only one seeing the hijacking of this thread?

Either way, great! I thought that I'd state that I forgot to mention in
my original post that I was considering running HSRP (vrrp) on my core
routers, for the access-layer clients who are not multi-homed.

Given my setup, does RFC3768 at the 'core' make sense?
