Ah, yes, the workers are quite revolting!

I'm still waiting for the IETF to come around
to allowing feature parity between IPv4 and IPv6
when it comes to DHCP.  The stance of not
allowing the DHCP server to assign a default
gateway to the host in IPv6 is a big stumbling
point for at least one large enterprise I'm aware
of.  Right now, the biggest obstacle to IPv6
deployment seems to be the ivory-tower types
in the IETF that want to keep it pristine, vs
allowing it to work in the real world.

Randy, I would happily appoint you as CIG-Q,
the Chief Inspector of Grass Quality.    ;)
