	You know there is a simple solution.  Get IPv6 connectivity.
	If your ISP doesn't provide it there are plenty of tunnel
	brokers that will provide connectivity, often for free.
	That's how my home network get IPv6 connectivity.

	If you don't won't is use a tunnel then set up 6to4 support.


	Note you will need IPv6 connectivity within the next few years.
