RE: multi homing pressure

If only I'd had the foresight to configure the all of the
customers I've setup on BGP with Bogon filters, and more
complex routing policies than defaults + provider customer
routes, then I would have made mountains of recurring
revenue from this "maintenance", and I would be reading this
thread in my mountain cabin with beleaguered amusement.

Alas, I met the customers requirement, it has to "just
work"... And it does.

(and yes, on the network I administer at my day job, I
bogon/rpf filter and aggressively traffic engineer.)
