if on the other hand ipv6 isn't going to make or save any money this year
for those who deploy it, because not enough others have deployed it, and if
the undepreciated capital plant doesn't support it so it would take capital
spending to get it done, then deploying ipv6 is a bad idea.  no earlypoints.

lather, rinse, repeat.

i don't like it, but there it is.
