But guys on the serious note, the best way to understand the theory is to
prove it using the IOS, this can be done for Multicasting, Helper-map,
Sparse mode Dense mode, Bidirectional and etc etc etc.
It is NOT what you configure, it is how you *verify* and *TEST* it, once you
have done that, it kinda sinks in much better and that's when you
understand.
I am glad to see many vendors taking my approach, hey it works if its done
correctly.
