shows it has not seen new work since April of 1996.  I think your idea
is very worthwhile - perhaps Avi can share some of his experiences with

        How many backbone NSP's would use a bgp aggreation tool that was
setup similar to the route-views.oregon-ix.net or route-server.cerf.net
that you would be able to do queries on to say "what might I not be 
aggregating correctly?"

        I'm working on such a tool that would be able to speak eBGP to
a router (multihop or otherwise) and give this information.  I've
a few providers that have /16's that announce each specific /24 or
each one also, this would also make it possible to generate lists of
that clog the routing table.  I've sent e-mail to some of these folks

        Please direct responses directly to me if you're interested, or
you have something useful on this topic for *everyone* on nanog, include
them also.
