We completley removed spanning tree from our network as we found it
actually made the whole thing less resilient. This is simply because there
are so many more things that can go wrong when you use it. This
probability also increases with the number of devices in the loop.
I beieve the only way you can achieve true resilience on reduntant
links is to use layer three routing.
