not wanting to rain on anyone's parade, but people have been claiming this
since the days of IPng.  Granted, we're a couple of years after IANA runout
and two RIRs are also in post-runout phase, but the level of pain
associated with continued deployment of ipv4-only services is still nowhere
near the point that ipv6 can be considered a viable alternative.
