This is very interesting, because many people suffer IPv6 problems on the *ubuntus, because IPv6 is the default. So those affected have to wait for IPv6 to time out when it is talking to a new server before IPv4 kicks in & does its thing.
Some have trouble browsing the web with Firefox unless they do about:config & disable IPv6. & some have to disable IPv6 globally by blacklisting it, to get good internet performance.
So, you can see where I got my education about IPv6 as my other machine is currently running Kubuntu 7.10, & I have been dealing with the IPv6 problems since I first started with Ubuntu 5.10, they are not hard to deal with once you know how (how often is that the case with Linux distro's?)
So you may see why I am so interested in the approach that Sabayon has taken, which by the way I fully agree with because it saves new users from having to learn about the IPv6 stuff by default.
I guess if I had an IPv6 ISP connection then I would just have to make a new kernel for Sabayon to take advantage of the speed increase of IPv6 that I have heard rumors of, which really shouldn't be a problem, unless of course I changed some things I shouldn't have while I was at it!

Do the blacklist thing & the ipv6 module will not be loaded.
