absolutely, 6tunnel tools 100% use iproute command, 6tunnel makes easy and
quick ipv6 tunnel administration.

MHO mtu is optional option, use iproute command to set the mtu, but maybe
i better put mtu option on the 6tunnel script too.

i know :)

btw, the 6tunnel script is just a litle script to help me using iproute,
it doesnt replace the iproute command, and ipv6 user know about this.

[root@Sniper:~]# head -2 /usr/sbin/6tunnel |tail -1
# IPv6 Tunnel Script using iproute package
