How about a speech that sez "Sprint will fix everything"?
There was a comment made in Boulder that with the addition
of Curtis's ideas on route damping and some judicious other
tweeks, that an RS could do just that.  We agreed to work
on adding just such features to the RS code.

It is  not clear that there was a client demand for this feature
right now.  Now if Sprint were to become a RS client, and asked 
for this feature, I expect that it would get higher priority 
than it does now.
