Well.  My problem is, I can't always forklift to the "latest and greatest"
in routing equipment - while our 7200s will shape just fine, they won't
go much faster than maybe 50 mbit/s with shaping.  OTOH our 6500s will
handle any bandwidth you throw at them, but will just not shape, period.

... and when I have to decide whether to get a 200 Mbit/s-on-GE line plus 
an ASR1k or ME3xxx to do shaping, or maybe get 2x100 Mbit/s line rate 
(or full GE) and plug into the already-there-6500...  the decision isn't 
always easy.
