Just to stay on the same page :D

I had a short chat with Dave Harrington Monday, and he asked "why not 
IPFIX?" - has anyone looked at IPFIX yet?

I know Glen Zorn's question in February was "why not SYSLOG?" - the answer 
then, from Eric Burger, was (paraphrasing) "SYSLOG's the envelope, CLF might 
use SYSLOG but needs to define what goes in the envelope".

The answer may be the same for IPFIX, and we'll probably need to figure this 
out, but if anyone has already looked at this, that would be great to know.

Thanks,

Spencer
