Right, that didn't occur to me. I had assumed that gated was
originally of berkeley origin. What concerns me is that we are
distributing routed; my experience is that more naive system
administrators are mislead by its presence than helped.
Experienced system administrators know to either:
-install gated (big network)
-use static routes (small network)
I believe that routed still does not deal with P2P links?
