Cisco's marketing people have decided that you should go out and purchase
a new switch.

No 12.2T and no 12.3 on the Cat5 RSM or RSFC, and thus, no IPv6 for those

Nice strategy to sell more boxes, but very poor approach to make happy

(What's especially annoying me about this is that, since 1997, IPv6 was
always "in the next IOS version", and when it finally arrived in the
official trains, support for the RSM/RSFC and the Cisco 4700 routers
was dropped in *just* *this* IOS train.  Coincidence?)

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
