	Speaking for myself
System: NetBSD zoo 1.4Y NetBSD 1.4Y (ZOO-$Revision: 1.52 $) #0: Fri May 26 14:58:14 MDT 2000 jim@zoo:/home/tmp/compile/sys/arch/i386/compile/ZOO i386

	/etc/daily distinguishes between ipv4 and ipv6 by the presence of
	a ":" in the third field of "netstat -in" output.  However, appletalk
	networks are listed with the prefix "atalk:", so /etc/daily thinks
	these are ipv6, even though there's no ipv6 anywhere on the local
	network.  For example:

IPv6 network:
Name  Mtu   Network       Address              Ipkts Ierrs    Opkts Oerrs Colls
de0   1500  atalk:1-65534 65280.249              266     0      187     0     0
lo0   32972 atalk:0       0.0                    370     0      370     0     0

	Run appletalk; read output of /etc/daily; wonder why there's anything
	listed under ipv6 network.

	Not sure.  It would be straightforward to simply move lines with
	"atalk:" to the ipv4 output section, but can appletalk ever run
	over ipv6?  If so, would netatalk support it, and how would the
	output of netstat differ in the two cases?
