Being a pTLA seems to take more than just one person tinkering
with it. I'm not sure what the exact rules are but something
like 3 dedicated staff is what I remember.

As far as internal site routing goes, the Solaris ripngd works

I really wish I could figure out why pinging the other side of
a tunnel doesn't return the packet. I'm pretty sure it has
something to do with Neighbor Discover and protocol 41.

I set up a tunnel:

	A <----> B

When host A pings host B, B sees it but doesn't return anything
over the non-site-local address. Same problem in the opposite
direction. Pinging site-local addresses (fe80) works just fine.
