I was looking through some very old mail list discussions (1996!) on this 
topic, and the feeling then was that the code was optimal for < 60,000 routes.
Given that much has happened since then, is it still a fair assumption to say
that the linux routing algorithm is optimized for < 60,000 routes, but a
more BSD-like algorithm works better for > 60,000 routes?
Thanks,
Kristen
