Dear Jared;

I could do this at NANOG 22 if there was any interest. I presented on SSM last time.

I honestly think that the main barrier is inertia, plus a lack of strong customer demand
(as in, people calling up and saying "why can't I get multicast ?"). I think a little
demand would go a long way towards overcoming the inertia.
