In that area we also tried to use longer prefixes than

processing longer prefixes via software. So we had to

prefixes including point to point links (and hope that
nothing will happen). But fact is that was 3 years ago,
so maybe today the situation is much better. I haven't

Interesting. Would you be able to tell us what kit that was, 
if possible?

Also, is this something those vendors can fix in software, 
or it's a hardware restriction?
