      That's probably true :) I remember I was pretty stumped by a
      bare-bones OpenBSD installation once.

      At this point, no. The biggest problem is that no ISPs around here
      provide native service, and no consumer-oriented hardware seem to
      support it, so at best I have to tunnel it through IPv4 (with all of
      what that means). Running IPv6 on a LAN with a handful of systems
      seems like a lot more trouble than it's worth. (I can remember
      an address like by heart, but for example
      fdaf:9ac3:374b:0:93f4:e301:ccad:49d2 is a quite different matter.)
