Does anyone know of any work done to do something SLIP-like for IPv6?
It would be pretty much a no-brainer to extend SLIP to handle IPv6; it
could even be done compatibly (in that the same line could handle v4
and v6 intermixed).  I had a quick gander through the RFCs and didn't
see anything; I conjecture that everyone who's wanted v6 has gone with
PPP.  But PPP is unsatisfactory to me in various ways, which is why I'm
using SLIP in the first place.

I would just hack on if_sl* except that if someone _has_ done something
of the sort, I'd like to at least consider being compatible.
