So, now you want people to give Cisco not only the ability to
install binary blobs on their machine -- but a root shell to do
it as well?  What could possibly go wrong.

I'd laugh but my intransigence gland doesn't appear to be

  Moving along, nothing technical or legal to see here,
  just a mirror, a single line, and a razor blade ...
