1) With a 7200-NPE-G2 as a dedicated Master Controller you can manage 20K
prefixes.  Managed prefixes can be dynamically learned and always changing
based on activity, or statically defined.

2) I definitely agree with that.  PfR is not just one or two commands and
your done.  It has a lot of nerd knobs.
