We should get this in the tree and start tracking the changes now.

I heard Telebit, not to be confused with the modem/terminal server people,
have developed an IPv6 router, and they have an actualy IPv6 network
running, they called me as they want a UK network provider to take part,
unfortunetly I'm too busy myself, but I'm sure they actually had an IPv6
network up and running, albeit using the same router...

The sooner the better IMO.
