Won't work that way.  PAIX is locating a switch in Ames whenever the contracts
and fiber are complete.  Ames will likewise locate a switch at PAIX.  But it
will be two switching fabrics that are each extended to the other's colo area,
not one bridged switching fabric like MAE-W/Ames used to be.  Anyone who wants
to be on both fabrics will be able to do that by buying a port on each, which
will be possible in either the PAIX-PAO1, PAIX-SFO1, or Ames colo facilities.
