For some equipment, it still works out to "forklift your network".  For
example, our current dialup gear doesn't support IPv6 (and AFAIK no
upgrades are available or planned to add it).  There's no reason for us
to replace our dialup gear; the only thing that fails on it is fans (and
we can replace those easily enough with an hour's work of chassis
dis/re-assembly).  Dialup isn't going to go away in the near future
