This being an experimental release, I would prefer to go
forward with a standalone kernel solution for the first
iteration then come back with the iproute2 changes at a
later time. IMHO, we should only touch iproute2 once, and
it should be an architected solution - not just a quick
hack. For the short term, timeliness of interoperability testing
with the other major OS's should be the highest priority, IMHO.

Other opinions?
