well of course i'm not bill, but (naturally) i will comment anyway.  was
AMS-IX planning to expand beyond its original metro and bridge all the XP
switches together?  if so then i understand exactly why KQ and other ISP's
would have pulled out of AMS-IX in protest (and in fear).  however, if the
expansion was intra-metro, then i must be confused, because KQ's major
source of bandwidth revenue should have been inter-metro not intra-metro.
