Works for me. I have the classifier up at my git repo, I hope to figure out
how to get this sort of stuff into 802.11e and 802.1d next.


I came up with a mildly more apt name for 'Information, Text', calling
it 'Immediate Text'. There's an even better name for it:

'Bandwidth Only For Help'

For which I doubt the acronym for will get past the first PHB, but *I*
like it...

Also, I gave up, and created a new PTP diffserv class for torrents, etc
using codepoint 9 which basically combines CS1 (bulk) with the TOS bit
of MMC (minimize monetary cost)

so, four new codepoints that adaquately classify a great deal of traffic
that has come to light since the original RFC...

I'll read it. I only just this morning get DRR into the cerowrt build...
