What, Tony, are you trying to tell me that we have to get rid of all the dumb routers out there now to get rid of dumb routing?

That old copies of FTP Software's PC code that can't deal with non-octet-aligned subnet masks (let alone supernets) are going to be in use by SOMEBODY as long as there is such a benighted nightmare as an IBM PC? Naw, no way, I simply can't believe that.
