Default With World IPv6 Launch, IPv6 on by default will be the new normal

From http://arstechnica.com/business/news...new-normal.ars

Some "technologies of the future" stubbornly remain in the future and resist becoming technologies of the present. Case in point: fusion energy. For a long time, IPv6 seemed to fall into that category. But now, could it finally be for real? Anyone who missed the memo: current IP addresses are 32 bits long and are running out. IPv6 fixes this with addresses that are 128 bits long. But this only works when you actually run IPv6. Last year, some big players did exactly that for one day as a test. This year, the idea is to leave it on.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
