this seems a silly reversal until you realize that OSPF is significantly
more complex and thus harder.
And if the person who is involved at 3 AM is well versed in OSPF, this all
becomes a non-issue.
And if the person at 3am ..... no.
What's sad is that there are only 2 real options and they are both imperfect
yet there is really no innovation I know of going on in this area
