Hey, I'm open to suggestions. It is an outdated and sometimes "odd"
name. For those interested in history: I picked the name many moons ago
because I knew it would solve 80% of my problem and therefore the
"right" solution to my problem at that time would never get done. Just
for the record, the "right" solution at the time was to have a database
that could generate my router configurations and have the database be
authoritative...not the routers. So I wanted a toxic name.
