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. :)
