Unless you guys are miraculously managing to terminate
Nx100G bundles into 6509s with Sup2 or sup3s, I would
be really, really surprised if this even made it on your
radar.  Chalk it up to poorly-researched reporting.

And if you *are* handling Nx100G bundles on 6509s,
please contact me off-list, I need to get the details on
your source for magic router pixie dust.   ;)
