[nsp] VPN product recommendation.

We've seen ~DS-3 level performance with 7204VXR's with NPE-400's and the ISA
adapter to offload encryption....  They can be had a reasonable price used
(at how much you'd spend on a 3640 new...)

Please keep me in the loop on this one, if the thread goes private. We've
just begun implementing a hub and spoke VPN topology with a 7200 at the hub
and 3600's at the remote locations with NM-VPN modules. Our limitations are
750pps on the 3640 and so we're talking about 8MB of traffic or so (and this
with optimal packet size). This is about half what we had hoped for (based
on the specs). Although we are still implementing it--too late to turn
back--we are already looking for a solution that will scale to our needs, at
the moment tending toward a *nix based solution, but I'm definitely open to
