UPnP/IPv6 support in home routers?

UPnP is the spawn of Beelzebub.  

Implementation by Bugs Bunny's maroons for use by other maroons is ok, I suppose, as long as those of us who are not maroons can turn the evil off.

However, if those maroons start whining about all the crap that happened to them because they enabled UPnP they better to be able to take the "I told you so you stupid maroon" in stride as a perfectly adequate and entirely correct statement of fact.

The fact that there's a Highway to Hell but only a Stairway to Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic volume.
