Initial Route Server Stats for MAE-East

I'd like to second Mike's note, particularly the call for participation.
Learning how to characterize IP clouds with carefully defined metrics of
delay, flow capacity, and packet loss will be real work.
        Note, for example, the discussion this weekend of how simple pings
to a loaded router don't yield a good measure of packet-forwarding loss.
The same could be said for trying to measure round-trip delay to a loaded
