Oh great. Would you please make all the involved providers, machines,
and firewalls use IPv6 next week?

This is one of the most stupid answers I've ever got.
Security by ignorance.

Do you really believe a security tool like ssh is the place to 
fight your personal religious war? Is ssh your crusade against IPv4?


(BTW: Have a look at Bruce Schneier's latest cryptogram. He is 
pointing out a security problem with the host key file. Maybe it would
be better to care about security than to dance around the 
holy grail IPv6. Most providers don't even have plans to invent it.
Focus on security, not religion.)
