No, he means IPv6  may in fact never be deployed, in the sense that
ATM to the desktop or ISO OSI was never widely deployed. Steve has been

Sure. but that doesnt mean it'll happen,  or that hardware vendors
will follow suit, or that IPv6 will ever really supplant IPv4.
or that the prolbems with IPv6 will acutally be solved.
