To be fair, it's really nothing more than FreeBSD with a couple of patches,
and Miredo packaged up in a nice-to-deal-with bundle, that means you can plug
it in today and make it work with 2 or 3 lines of config, instead of spending
the next 3 years "engineering a solution" that the various parts of "the
business" agree with - that is, assuming they give their engineers time to
even think about IPv6, let alone engineer for it. Key word: pragmatic.

Perhaps you could integrate your work with a project like pfsense?

From what I've seen, that's the best "open source CPE" solution, and
doesn't yet have real IPv6 support (but has just about everything else).
That would be a huge benefit to the community and potentially open up some
business opportunities for you.

It'd be good if the pfsense guys would do some IPv6 stuff, yes. I however, am not really interested in building CPEs, nor am I interested in building CPEs commercially.
