So.. playing around with sushi today.. I found that if you issue a command like:

ifconfig tlp0 inet x.x.x.x inet6 fe80::2a0:ccff:fee7:5dfc%tlp0

ifconfig tells you that you cannot set a destination address on a
non-point-to-point link.   Is that proper behavior?  It seems non-intuitive to
me that I cannot set both addresses in one command.
