Going with multiplex prefixes as the multihoming solution just means you 
need to renumber lots of network hardware any time you change *any* of

solved in time.

I'd love to compare this list to mine... can you (or Owen) provide a 

For IPv6 I'm more a software guy (RTMFP in Flash Player does IPv6) than 
an operator (sold my last (non-IPv6-capable) ISP a few months ago, have 
one IPv6 upstream via tunnel at home).
