There's a lot of work being done on isisd actually, by the "RBridges" 
project over on opensolaris.org. I was hoping they would offer some 
more comments on your patches actually - I've received a few, but 
they said they'd get back with more (they seem to have been quite 
busy recently integrating RBridges with OpenSolaris).

Basically, I know v little about isisd and I'd like to see a 
discussion about the outstanding isisd patches between those who do 
know it.
