Hmm...gotta say it (again).  Of course oc192/10ge firewalls are not
currently widely deployed (aka not a best practice), but they should be!

Of course, folks will argue that you have to pay a lot of extra $$
to make that a reality...kind of like how auto makers argue that you
should pay a lot of extra $$ for the GPS receiver in your car (which
does not COST a lot of extra $$).
