>"something that has been looming for the last 20 years.."
And that's the point of my earlier posts - in 20 years of this looming issue the only answer we've gotten from "those who know" is a solution that is horrible overkill for the problem at hand (and seems to be used and evangelized primarily by those with a bit too much zeal for said solution). Christ, even Microsoft eventually admitted Vista was a miss and a step too far.
As long as we admins have the option to not use it, a lot of us will choose that option in the vain hope that someone from the "those who know" pool will come up with a better solution. Or we retire. Or IPX comes back from the dead. Either is an acceptable alternative. If Google, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Ebay, et a,l switch to IPv6 overnight, then yes, we admins will follow along the next morning, grumbling in our beards, and life will go on.
