I don't know... CIX has some fundamental flaws.  CIX was primarily
built, as near as I can tell, to carry out the personal agendas
of a select few.  I don't know whether or not IPSPA has a chance of
avoiding this problem.  However, CIX has definitely suffered as a
result of some of it's policies and attitudes.
