I think it would be useful to have leaf sites in the 6bone.net domain as
well, though maybe under some subdomain of it.  Perhaps I'm alone, but I
find that connectivity is still sufficiently flaky that I want to ping
other sites fairly often - and it would be a lot easier to say "ping
uunet-uk.6bone.net" than to have to look up their RIPE entry and dig out
the IPv6 address.

I've added entries for the sites to which I have tunnels to my local DNS
for just this purpose.

Is there any way to automatically generate a zone file from the RIPE
