       matrix.conf  is  the  configuration  file from and is a joint
       work of Hugo Santos, Sebastien Chaumontet and Mickael  Hoerdt.  It  has
       been done in the early days of the m6bone, when nobody knew if the SPTs
       or RPTs were  being  used  between  hosts  and  also  to  evaluate  the
       performance and deployment of SSM.
