Consider a network operating in SSM and a dual homed multicast src
device.  Is there a standard way to setup the forwarding between the
routers and the src device to get the SSM trees built properly?  Seems
as if the device needs to eiter participate in routing and announce the
src IP or run something like HSRP.  Issues with these approaches?
Other options?
