Does anyone have further details (and is permitted to share them), like

 - which IOS trains are available?  "Standard" 12.3T or "weird-letter"?
 - IPv6 support?
 - IPv6 support *on the forwarding ASIC*?
 - what kind of features are missing (netflow, ACL logging, counters)?
   (Hardware-based low-end Cisco platforms are quite notorious for 
   lacking these interesting bits)

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