Was that recently or some time ago?  I have a client with pending orders
for a few C&W DS1's and they're giving him /27's at each site.  Each site
will have a T1/ethernet router doing NAT and VPN, so in theory, all that's
needed is the serial interface IP, but they really wanted to give him a
/27 per site, and we figure it's worth taking just in case we eventually
want to give something a public IP at one of these sites.
