Folks,

I just caught a beta-4.3bsd coughing up ICMP Source Quench and claiming
its address to be 127.0.0.1, but truly was on a net-128.5 subnet. This
is yet again evidence supporting the well-travelled axiom that says
to resist the urge to encroach on the net-address space as a substitute
for intra-host routing mechaniss. I would like to suggest that
a new net be conceived called DEAD-LETTER with net number 127.0. Volunteers
are invited to submit gateways to that net.

Dave
