Thanks. An interesting read, and delightfully brief.

I hadn't thought about the weakest link problem. "I'm okay since I have
tunnels", but what about some of the sites I need to reach?

Speaking of tunnels, the resistance to them is surprising. Specifically,
I hear from several friends that they just don't wanna. (Difficult to
persuade people to do something they simply dislike. God gave us all
free will.)

Speaking not of tunnels, when I got native IPv6 at home (having used the
tunnel before), things were weird. ISP "camps" me on the lone IPv4
lease, but either they or my router insist on changing the IPv6
sub-leases with much higher frequency. The effect is that IPv6 native at
my place is client only, useless for servers.
