Yepp, but that only tell you the host part (the last 64bits of the IPv6
addr), where does one automatically get the net part from (the 64bit
prefix). Usually this comes from a radvd server, which in the end means
that the autoconfiguration mechanism provided by IPv6 is imho not much
better than the ipv4+dhcp mechanism in the case of manets.
Of course, one could have a special script, that just takes any
well-known net prefix, as frank sugested. But where do you get that
from if your iface is not configured yet to fetch that script from the
internet? (same problem as with the hen and egg, what was there
so i'd say there is still some way to go for real auto-configuration.
