a prospective implementor looks at ipv6 and sees a whole bunch of twisty
passages of useless second system syndrome.  there are more damn options
than the chicago mercantile exchange.  and as there is no *strong* pull
from the market, all our pleas do not transform income you can sell to
your management.

when multiple layers of ipv4 nat is financially more attractive than our
product, we have a very serious problem.  we need to wipe the lipstick
off the pig and start selling straightforward port chops.

except i fear it is far too late.
