[Wiltshire] IPV6

I  am not sure I see the need for IP6 everywhere. I suspect people will  tunnel 
until such time as the ISP convert. This could be another 10  years away. 

The only difficulty with not having IP6 connectivity  as I see it is the DNS 
lookup on IP6 only sites will fail. Until there  are a large number of IP6 only 
sites worth visiting we are stuck on  IP4  (with possible tunnelling for those 
smart enough to do so).  I am  surprise that there are no commercial tunnelling 
routers available at a  reasonable price.  A bit like my WAN/LAN router which 
provide NAT  connection to the VM network and a local IP network internally. It 
would  take some softwre but as well as offering dynamic DNS support it could  
tunnel IP6 to a programmed end point.
