My sincere apologies. At the time, that kickstarter was failing, and I
was mindblown that nobody had seen the potential of it, and I had
spent 3 days, trying to convince more people to throw in, as I had
already thrown in all I could.

My comment was directed far more at the universe than yourself and was
more in the context of my prior bufferbloat-related rant earlier in
the day, which I have spent 4 years on, mostly full time, and mostly

I am still sad that nobody threw in for that get one give one program
(who pays for the software engineers?), and that it took events like
heartbleed to get the LF´s core infrastructure inititative funded,
and, well, frankly, it is a long, long list of things that bug me that
have accumulated... that I will try to keep off this list.

So to return this to a more rational basis - why does an edge network
need MPLS in the first place?
