eyeball networks... we hack and patch them together. Silly putty is very 
useful. IPv6 rollouts are no different. Just more silly putty.


IPv4 support for all the applications and appliances that don't support 
IPv6 is what will suck. So, don't worry about the ISP. Core networks are 
gearing up super fast (they've actually been at it for years, just not 
rolled it out), eyeballs will hack and patch easy enough (CPEs aren't 
that large a deal, and 6rd even gets us around internal v4 only problems 
in those isolated areas), many standard services on the net are v6 
capable. Those which aren't, that's their own fault. They've had decades. :)
