Are you referring to the one below that Jordi just posted?

If yes, I don't see where the scoop is. There are routers that handle
200k routes. Having people designing a router to hold 1M is yesterday's
news. Without specific info, I'd bet you a buck that Cisco and Juniper
are working on it, too. The fact that they are working on it does _not_
mean we will see a 1M prefixes routing table. A distinct possibility if
no multihoming solution is released soon, put still only a possibility.

The availability of a real IPv6 multihoming solution.
