...although the exact effects depend on your particular mix of
upstreams. LOCAL_PREF trumps AS_PATH...
I severely de-pref long paths, thus [hopefully] giving those who
prepend their desired result. A side benefit is this often
catches long-pathed improper redistributions. I know I'm not
alone in this. And one usually can adjust LOCAL_PREF via
community advertised to an upstream.
IOW: YMMV (YMWV if using no more than prepends)
