I fully agree with you that we need it.  I was just (maybe a language
misunderstanding) reading the "Would be glad if IPV6 is finally a reality"
as quite passive, hoping that other people would make it happen, while
we all have our influence here.  So apologies if I misunderstood you.

OTOH, IPv6 *is* a reality here already.

Good track record, but that sounds all like personal efforts, while you
were complaining about "servers have no addresses", which sounds more like
corporate environment - and that is specifically what my message was 
all about: one needs to be active here, to ensure that IPv6 happens,
*especially* in the corporate environment (now that DSL and cable providers
are rolling it out to end users).
