Well, that turned out to be a farce. Instead of worrying about running
out of addresses on the lan, you have to worry about other people
tracking your mobile users through their static 64 bit tail (SLAAC) or
having trouble internally tracking your users (privacy extensions).
Give me the straightforward problem over the subtle one any time.
