The bridge vendor whose bridges require source routing is IBM. I do not
know whose bridges restrict the size of the packet to 508 bytes of IP data,
but I sincerely hope it isn't IBM.

You see, I don't really expect IBM to notice that their product has this sort
of mis-feature, and I do expect them to sell a great deal of whatever it is,
mis-feature or not, so my own code is likely to have to live with whatever
they do (like MS/DOS).
