I'm seriously tempted to grow our own next time - get a decent quad-core
server with 4G RAM and a 10G NIC, put Linux or FreeBSD on it, and run 
something like[1] on top of it...  real software modularity,
full multi-processor support, yadda yadda...

[1]: Last time I researched this, there were a number of competing L2TP 
implementations for Linux, a fair number of them with commercial support 
to back it - this time, I only found OpenL2TP, but I only googled for 
5 minutes or so, so I might have missed others

did you enable IPv6 on something today...?
