Please note that Ceni doesn't have IPv6 support[1], which is the reason
why neither of us has pushed it to Debian so far. Adding support for
the various IPv6 flavours (static, SLAAC with and without privacy 
extensions, dhcpv6) would be reasonably possible, but isn't on the 
immediate to-do list, patches are of course welcome. Likewise for 
supporting the various IPv6 related tunneling protocols (6in4, 6t4, 
6rd) or additional imginable functionality (PPPoE, VPN tunnels, etc.).

If anyone were to step up to maintain this in Debian despite this known
problem, we'd be happy to accommodate Ceni and help with its (existing)
packaging as needed.

[1]	Ceni doesn't deal with inet6 stanzas, which effectively means that 
	ifupdown falls back to SLAAC (if available by the router) without
	privacy extensions enabled (privext 0).
