Hah, interesting thought! :-)  Perhaps we should push for people to use the
IPv4+NAT kludge, which may turn around and fuel IPv6 deployment as people
discover the crippled functionality with widespread deployment.  Two seperately
NAT'ed hosts don't communicate enough today for more than a "priviledge few" to
discover all the issues with it.

Then again, I don't believe pain is the best way to induce change, but it does
seem to work remarkably efficient at times.
