8940 9000 9216 10420, sigh what I wouldn't give for a copy of by Rich
Seifert's Gigabit Ethernet book in front of me right now. Will someone
find some IEEE material that discusses some of this and try to find what
is closest to the real number we should be aiming for. I'm "thinking" its
9000... Anything from 802.3ae 10GigE?
