For those of us without much ipv6 experience, how could you tell that
TWC was giving you ipv6 address space? Did you have to set up anything
ipv6-specific first?

I have my own Zoom cable modem on TWC, in bridge mode connected to an
OpenWRT 12.09 router. So far the only ipv6 addresses I see in ifconfig
on OpenWRT are marked Scope:Link.
