So...  Is that a vote for or against, and which one? ;)

I may have been insufficiently specific...  I'm referring to:

group example {
     neighbor 2001:db8::;


group example-ipv4 {

group example-ipv6 {
     neighbor 2001:db8::;

The former is (operationally) simpler to deal with, until it isn't -- 
think "deactivate group example", etc.  I'm tempted to just be explicit 
about the split everywhere, but I already spend enough time explaining 
that there are two of everything and it's been that way for a while now...
