I have some patches for using PIM Version1 on IPv4 that I'll send to you
and Alexey for reviewing.

I also discused with Pedro Roque, some pratical aspects of implementing PIM on IPv6
and I'm now starting this work.

Pedro Roque dumped his latest work to me this evening, it has the IPv6
FIB code and lots of other goodies. The patch is rather large, but I
should be able to merge it all in this evening and send all my latest
networking stuff to Linus for inclusion in 2.1.30.

You might want to hold off on the ipv4 PIM stuff until Alexey sends
Alan his latest patch set, as I know he has made numerous changes all
over the code, or so I've heard.
