the problem with these hokey things to show ipv6 works, or to get ipv6
to a home user, is that they don't really scale. they're good for
marketing but not for long run real operations.

and that would be ok, in a sense; it's just marketing.  the problem is
when the marketing flack obscures getting real work done on making ipv6
scalable and deployable.
