no such thing exists... you cannot magically increase the size of
addresses and be backwards compatible. Even NAT, which didn't touch the
size of an address, isn't backwards compatible and broke plenty of
protocols.

You want magic or divine intervention... it doesn't exist. Only plain
old hard work will get us to our mundane goals of moving to ipv6.
There's really nothing to be gained by wishing otherwise.
