AFAIK there are now IPv6-capable images released for the 3750s yet, but
unlike the 3550s they at least have hardware capable of doing so
whenever Cisco decides that IPv6 is more than some annoying thing they
need to just minimally support so purchasing departments can X off that
point on their checklists.

"Customers can deploy the Catalyst 3750 platform knowing it is
IPv6-capable in hardware and as a result can support this protocol _with
a future software upgrade_"
