Re: Lies, damned lies, and statistics that don't lie.

You're thinking of 6in4. (6to4 is basically an automatically-provisioned 6in4 tunnel for every v4 address.) Teredo lets a single client connect to v6 servers over a v4 network.

All of those let you do v6 over v4 infrastructure. I'm not seeing how that's not backwards compatibility.
