Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

I fully agree; I have tried the really elegant workaround proposed by Adam:


and it seems to work very well; i tried also to disable stp, blocking
forwarding traffic thru the bridges, so that the final topology is
