them Net-30 payment terms right now.
actually, this is an interesting point. normally in bankruptcy,
vendors for the bankrupt outfit are not permitted to terminate

now a true peering agreement isn't a vendor/customer relationship,
but it is interesting to consider how a bankruptcy court might
see it. C&W has done some level of damage (how much is uncertain)
to a company in bankruptcy, and there was probably some written
agreement with the force of a contract between the two.

i bet this ends up in court more or less immediately.
