BUT: won't the network go: pure-v4 -> v4+v6 -> v6 (probably with v4 tunnels) -> pure-v6 I don't think its just going to go: POOF! one night, nor in one year... Judging by how long it takes people to upgrade a simple major application or OS it'll take YEARS to upgrade entirely to pure-v6. of course, I could be completely wrong.
