According to Alan Cox' diary , it is far from sure the new things
introduced by ippfvsadm (eh the changes in the kernel I mean) (the
load-balancing feature) will be in 2.0.36. We'll see.
As for now, I don't think it's necessary to write another wrapper. Until
the package is needed in the distribution, it isn't. Let's just wait and see
what the kernel hackers do, I'd say.
