I want to use an address of my own, rather than the MAC-based address,
for a machine.  The only way, other than hard-coding the route, to get
an ipv6 default router is rtsol, but that also adds a MAC-based

Are there any plans of adding a "configure routes, don't add
addresses" flag to rtsol?  I don't own/maintain the routers, so they
can change over time.  I do control my reverse IP lookups though.

Whoever put the ff:fe bits in the _middle_ of an ipv6 address should
be taken out and beaten.  The way things are now, anything on an ipv6
subnet needs to have one common DNS server.  Grr.
