Some of it is going to involve how your ipv6 network is set up I think.  Do
you want to set up a tunnel broker tunnel?  Or a 6to4 address (assuming a
static public ipv4)?  Or real ipv6 because your ISP is ahead of its time?
(...well, compared to just about anything in the US anyway)

On the other hand, the configuration of the address and routing tables is
pretty similar for all of these; just a case of picking the right device names
based on the tunnel setup, and setting up the tunnels.  Maybe we skip that in
the book for simplicity?
