That "6-to-4 actually means 6-in-4" was quite confusing to me as well. I
just enabled it to prove that they had a language moment there. Good
thing it didn't backfire on me :-).

Not sure I'd blame them either - they develop a lot of features for
pretty much next-to-nothing; and are being enabled by customers that are
willing to take the risk for relief on budget.

They could be more inclined to fix bugs and develop corner-case features
sooner if they were in the premium market. But, as my (well-known on
this list) American friend would say, "I conjecturbate" :-).
