>> well, when I worked in Tromsx for the second half of 2002

I didn't think it was worth a separate message, but since I'm writing
anyway: I forgot the list stripped high bits.  That x in Tromsx should
be an o-slash.  (The Swede I'm overtly responding to probably already
knows that, but some others might not.)

"Well, you have at least one customer who wants it."  But, as long as
enough customers are content with crippled previous-gen connectivity, I
suspect v6 will gain little traction.

One reason I'm with the provider I am is that they understand things
like v6.  (I once spoke with a Bell rep - Bell being one of the really
big mass-market end-user connectivity providers here - who asked why I
didn't switch to Bell, and I said, I want at least a /29 of v4 space,
native v6, and control over my reverse DNS.  He said, I don't know what
you just said.  I said, exactly.)
