IIRC, the designers of IPv6 left out the parts of IPv4 that tended to
bottleneck routers, like recalculating header checksums after
decrementing the TTL; they intended to make IPv6 faster than IPv4 on
the same amount of hardware.  I guess you think they failed?

Edsger Wybe Dijkstra died in August of 2002.  The world has lost a great
man.  See http://advogato.org/person/raph/diary.html?start=252 and
