Well, funny you should say that.

I'm a masochist, so next week, I'm going to look into getting L3 to
extend native IPv6 down my 10Mb/s uplink.

My edge machines are Linux 2.6.mumble, but the one that faces L3 is at
the end of another 10Mb/s tail circuit to me from a colo cage, so it's
going to be Even More Fun.

Has anyone already done the Edge IPv6 dance with L3?
