route-map cogent-ick permit 10
  match community-list <aggregate-only>
  set as-path prepend <iamuglypath> <iamuglypath> <iamuglypath>

route-map cogent-ick deny 20
  match community-list <deaggregated-routes>

route-map happy-with-backup permit 10
  match community-list <deaggregated-routes>
  
route-map happy-with-backup deny 20
  match community-list <aggregate-only>
