But does, and is v4 exclusively and one of my
MX still has legacy IP as well.  But the message wasn't for Igor anyway.

I was just mumbling about the fact that the IPv6 advocacy activists and people
in charge of v6 rollouts should eat more of their dog-food to make sure that
we'll actually be ready for _more_ IPv6 only users rather than falling into the
same tarpit we hit for DS in the near future.  The web strangely is the least
thing I care about.


PS: I hope all of the big guys will actually have AAAA glue records for their 
domains in DNS for world IPv6 day.  So far most of them are failing that test
badly which means the brokeness of IPv6 starts at the very beginning:(
