well alright, they're not perfect but i seriously doubt that if an isp
customer (anyone's customer) disputed pulling down a 1.5M .zip file
sometime last month as part of their overall usage sensative bill that said
isp could show the customer proof in the log files or captured packet
traces.  my only point was that we have a long way to go on the isp side.

and if i'm wrong, i'd appreciate pointers to any rock-solid billing
software out there.
