       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.
