Note that the magic of an E10K isn't the processors (which are pretty
similar to the E6500), it's the partitioning and backplane magic.

An E10K backplane is pretty deep voodoo.  I'm told that it's not
a Sun design, nor is it a Sun manufactured.  They're pretty pricey
too - I'm guessing that you DID have a price point for this router with
less than 7 digits in it?
