I've had some dialogue with Chuq Von Rospach about this worm patch
thing and have concluded that it should have taken much longer than 5
days for Sun to approve Berkeley's patches. (My back of the envelope
calculations show that this process requires at least 3 years, 3
months, and 5 days.)

I withdraw my previous remarks and commend Chuq Von Rospach and Sun
Microsystems for their amazing effort which shoe horned years worth of
work into a mere 5 days.

P.S. If another problem develops which affects tens of thousands of
Unix systems and you can't wait years or even days for a fix, wait a
few hours and I'll bet Berkeley will come up with something.
