Maybe. The class of products I need to run from Cisco don't (can't) run 
XR so that's no use to me.

The "suck" is an assessment of their company-wide level of seriousness 
and effort. If Cisco as a whole were serious about automation, they'd 
have solved this one way or another - XR on all platforms, whatever.

Well done to the XR-using-products BU, but I'm afraid I don't cut 
individual Cisco BUs slack, independent of the rest of the company ;o)
