That'll only get you peering connectivity into the local region.  To get
fully-peered with AWS, and be able to avoid third-party transit providers
entirely, you're going to have to be in a *lot* of places.

Not saying that AWS is a bad peer (from experience, I know they're fine to
deal with) but it isn't as cut-and-dried as saying "don't blame transit
providers, just peer!".

A few minutes ago I attempted to give a flying fsck, but the best I could do
was to watch it skitter across the floor.
