Hi Leo,

If it does, it will surely include some of the folks on this mailing
list. So, if "YOU" believe that that "YOU" will spend less manpower
that you currently spend implementing IPv6 as a result of allocating
240/4 for private IP address space, please speak up now or at least
drop me a line privately so that we can either confirm the issue or
lay it to rest.
