Tony, Bill:

I think that the situation is a bit more 
complicated that what I can understand from your comments.
I agree regarding IPv6 is the solution, but IPv6 
will not be widely adopted only because we think that would be the solution.
So, we will have to deal with IPv4 still for some 
more time. And we have to work in ensuring the 
same possibilities of access to IPv4 resources to everybody around the world.
IMHO we have to work in making IPv6 more feasible 
bat also in paralel we have to work in optimizing 
the usage of IPv4. It can be done in a "non very 
painful" way. I guess that nobody can obstract 
Intenet development. Concluding, "buying time" 
could be benefitial for the community, and it is enough for me.
