I'm still a Nexus virgin... so excuse my naive question... but... :)

I've heard more than once that Nexus 5K is not quite ready for Layer-3
prime time, but I have also heard others swear by at (as opposed to
swearing AT it).

So what's the real scoop?  Are you deploying N5K just for L2 and
front-ending it with some other L3 device?
