I remember the days of Ron Natalie running around with a cherry picker 
in San Jose, and the whole point of the network being to test 
interoperability, so that things would and did break (and then we fixed 
them).  If v6 is even close to ready, wouldn't it be sad that this sort 
of testing isn't done at interop?  Or is it just sad that v6 isn't so 
close to being ready?  Or is it both?
