In article <D491DDB9-0788-41B4-AD63-586CCA98512E@qti.qualcomm.com> you write:

Clearly it depends on your frame of reference.  If I needed to publish
some new RRs to enable stealth malware that would prevent a North
Korean nuclear missile launch, I could probably figure out how to do
it using some of Mark's kludges.

In real life, with most configuration software, it's still too hard.

R's,
