my experience to date tells me two things.
first, this is fertile ground, and companies like caspian will continue
getting founded and funded and ipo'd as long as it remains unsolved,
which is to say, probably forever.
second, there are butt-ugly workarounds, like interprovider tunnels or
even private peering connections, which will be used to put out the
occasional fires that occur in this area.
