I wouldn't call them renegade, to be honest.  I wondered back then how
to achieve an IPv6-only network to check applications for compatibility,
but missed the option to still connect to IPv4 hosts without the use
of proxies.  I don't care about the additional NAT layer because I'm
NATed anyway.  Thanks for those pointers, although the implementations
seem to be missing (not for Windows but for others as it seems).

Oh ok, I just saw documents deprecating NAT-PT altogether, but I didn't
know the latter.

Thanks a lot,
