I had replied to Chip directly but will post it out here now as well.
If you go with IPplan then you want to get the latest from CVS/SVN as
there have been some patches applied that fix some bits with IPv6
free-space searching and also with utilization calculations.  If you
just download the 6.00-BETA2 package then you would also want to grab
the patch I posted to the bug tracker.  Enjoy, I do.
