But alas I am not an ASIC designer, nor do I work for Juniper, nor am I in any way qualified to do anything other than talk out my ass about the benefits and drawbacks of any specific bit groupings in a multi-bit trie implementation in hardware. So unlike the rest of the list, I will quit while I am ahead. :) -- Richard A Steenbergen <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.e-gerbil.net/ras GPG Key ID: 0xF8B12CBC (7535 7F59 8204 ED1F CC1C 53AF 4C41 5ECA F8B1 2CBC)
