Supply and demand. There was no demand (most of my vendors didn't get
any requests/questions concerning IPv6 until roughly 6 months ago). J
and C have had considerable support (though still a work in progress)
for some time, though I'd agree that 5 years sounds about right (it
takes 1 large core network to push C/J into implementing base IPv6, but
it was originally around that customer's desires and not multipurpose).
