Yeah...well its certainly a recent thing...our circuit was 4 months late
getting turned up (6 telephone companies involved...ugh) but we
originally configured it for PPP encap, and then when it finally did get
turned up, we switched it to frame-relay...so its been within the past
4 months that this edict was delivered.  :)
