Why do you assume this is a sarcastic reply?

I already just recently implemented basic IPv6 support in the server  
myself in the past couple days (feel free to go whois my obs client on  
pickled, which should likely stick around for a good while.) I plan on  
having full, proper IPv6 support in both the server and in BRMH (with  
obvious patches to let other client authors add IPv6 support easily as  
well) working within the next few days and committed to the codebase.

My current IPv6 connectivity is via multiple tunnels to IPv6 backbones  
using source routing, and this forms a perfect opportunity to support  
SCTP. So yes, the server does not support SCTP, but it could do so,  
and use features such as multihoming extensions (a logical extension  
of multiple IPv6 tunnels.)

This is not a mailing list for retarded sarcastic comments (well,  
other than my random port number given), so I would appreciate you not  
discounting my ideas. Maybe SCTP is a good idea, maybe it isn't. But,  
why don't you go implement it, and see how it works out?
