IPv6 is *NOT* a "new technology". Not even close. XP supported IPv6,

has been supported in Cisco IOS since late 11.x. How long does
something have to be around before it isn't "new" anymore? Calling
someone who implements IPv6 *now* as cutting or leading edge is
ridiculous.

Support is not complete. See this warning in the susefirewall config file - - it's just an example, there are more:

# Note2: the iptables recent module may not be available for ipv6. To
# avoid an error message use 0.0.0.0/0 instead of 0/0. This will
# install the rule for ipv4 only.
