Frankly, I'm sure I'll be at least semi-retired and maybe dead before IPv4
disappears. ( and while I'm 60, my folks are 90 and my grandmother will be 107
in September so we're looking at a long time. :-) )  I would have to get my
current upstream ISP to start routing IPv6 and their comment so far has been
"We'll be ready when IPv6 gets here".  I'm simply willing to start looking at
v6 and start a push from the bottom to get v6 adopted and available.

If ARIN has no desire to give legacy v4 holders such as me IPv6 space, I'll just
stay with v4 and give up trying to keep up with the PPML mailing list.
