	This brings up something I've always wondered.  Why do we have
public depeerings, rather than public deprefings?  You'd think both
sides could at least agree to set localpref to 1, and not send each 
other anything that they don't absolutely have to until they resolve
their issues.  Bypass them if at all possible, but don't partition 
the interwebs.

	Or am I dreaming of ponies again?
