An alternative exists, although it is somewhat intrusive relatively
to qeth. I sent it for review by Utz Bacher on 9/23/2003. He replied
on 9/29 with:

 Re. the large patch you sent -- the idea sounds feasible, but I need some
 more days. I won't be a change short-term (i.e. RHEL 3), will it? Our test
 guys would need to go over it accurately anyway.

Received message from Utz today:

Re. the list management. We concluded that we can't contain the test
to guarantuee that it won't cause any customer problems, despite any first
tests and review didn't reveal anything worrysome. Therefore we say:
want we qeth to be more or less stable as proven since 2000, than capable
of IPv6. We will however adopt the code and incorporate into our 2.6
changes (my personal opinion is, that there are quite some changes in the
2.6 qeth to come).
