My driving objective is to get IPv6 support into a supported form. As
I see it we will pass the point of no return in a few weeks when we
start to put in place permanent infrastructure for a fork. Up until

There's doubtless many other ideas people have; it doesn't seem like I
will need to go it alone, so it should be possible to move on to them
