[LibreQoS] how are you doing on ipv4 address supply?

we use RFC6598 addressing and CGNAT on the edge unless someone pays for an
IP.  Very slowly getting IPv6 implementation down.  Poor CRM/Shaper support
for it being a big struggle.  Preseem+UISP for example requires that
whatever is handling IPv6 PD be pollable from preseem so they can grab
MAC:PD prefix and combine them.  VISP has implemented this better recently
but I haven't fully implemented yet, that's a goal for this month.

We don't 'tunnel' ie no MPLS/VPLS, SRV6, EVPN right now.  We technically do
GRE tunneling, terragraph works just like OSPFv3 on IPv6 w/ GRE tunnels.

Part of the reason not to tunnel is that we don't have a single headend, we
have regional POPs and interconnections between so we can reduce outages
caused by the POPs.  Fully routed seems to only non-convoluted way to
handle this.  Not interested in a VRRP moving my tunnel endpoint addresses
between regions, that's a mess.  And so we route.
