I'm also fighting a losing battle to convince people that netconf isn't
evil.  It strikes me as odd that if I wanted to talk to a
database/website
full of credit card and billing info there's a long list of API's I could
use, but if I wanted to talk to the router or firewall in front of it I
can
only use ssh or telnet.

sad, right? there are millions of restful program writers, only a few
thousand network device programmers, and the vast majority of 'network
management' is done by people perfectly happy with 'cisco-works' :(


according to the law of supply and demand, that would be.... demand? right?
