 If squid or some other HTTP proxy does ipv6, a multihomed box could
provide an easy way to reach a Debian archive from a v6-only network.

 Not that we shouldn't get Debian mirrors reachable with ipv6, just
pointing out that there might be a good alternative.  (good mostly
because squid does caching, which is great if you point a bunch of
machines at it.  (increase maximum_object_size to 100000 KB so it will
cache even the big .debs))
