I thought this was interesting as well.  This other group within
AT&T has obviously looked at the potential scaling problems, the
risks associated with it, and continue to deploy it.  As a side
note, this group has built large networks in the past, and given
the size and scope of their networks, have a stability that most
operators would envy.  Oh by the way, they are profitable too.

Randy, what was your point again?
