I'm very well aware of both.

I already did. The answer so far was "We don't need that yet." :-(
They seem to think that owning enough IPv4 address suffices and maybe
also that there's no customer demand (yet).

And in general: Just one person asking doesn't make them provide IPv6
instantly. It needs enough people to nag them to realise the demand.

Another issue is choice: At some locations, especially those with
fiber, you don't have a choice wrt. to ISPs, otherwise changing the
ISP towards one with native IPv6 connectivity is also an option.

Yes, but until SixXS closes down, we want and need aiccu maintained
properly in Debian.

I disagree that bringing the package back in shape is a waste of time,
especially if getting native IPv6 is not yet possible everywhere at
the moment.
