Although this may well ultimately prove true, people do realize that
filing for chapter 11 is not synonymous with going out of business,
Show me one case, in the xDSL CLEC business where this has held true. Thus
far, *every* one of them, that has filed CH11, has gone out of business
within 30 days, as near as I can tell. The track record is pretty dismal.
