Is it like the astronomical white hole then, that spews out stuff
that never went into it in the first place - basically a big source
of network spam 8(

If it just swallows everything that's thrown at it in the same way
that /dev/null does, then the current name is a bit misleading...

No, actually, as Andi mentioned in another posting, my description of
the white hole device was wrong, it serves another purpose (it is not
like a /dev/null for unroutable packets). Alexey can probably
describe it well as he created it.
