Wise words, indeed.

I think this is indicative of a wide rift between agreement that there
is a problem (IPv4 exhaustion) but disagreement on _accepting_ the
solution (IPv6).  We know that IPv6 is the best solution we have right
now, but issues, both real and perceived, with IPv6 adoption means that
IPv6's defenders can come off rather strongly in an effort to forestall
greater IP-exhaustion problems down the line.

I wish there would be an IPv7 that was IPv4 backwards-compatible and
solved many of IPv6's negative-perceptions, but we'll have to deal with
what we have, especially in the time crunch that we have.
