Well, considering how very few vendors actually support IPv6, it's hard to 
find proper competition. Even the companies who do support IPv6 very well 
in some products, not all their BUs do on their own products (you know who 
you are :P ).

I'm hopeful though, I see more and more references to IPv6 show up in 
product powerpoint presentations, so it's moving in the right direction.
