You've had quite the run of bad luck.  My IPv6 stuff was working
perfectly and with almost no effort.  Until I lost an ethernet card in
a VXR and snagged one from the IPv6 box as a "spare", heh.  Gotta get
around to fixing that, but in the meantime no IPv6 on the colo LAN is
not exactly an operational deal-killer.

Gee, thanks.  I'd managed to not think about ISODE for several years.

I think the likelihood that people will eventually stop caring about
IPv6 like they stopped caring about OSI is fairly slim, even if the
only real problem that V6 addresses is address exhaustion.

IPv6 had more traction five years ago than OSI ever had.
