Please do so. I had shutdown the native connectivity to my laptop
last night and tried to work with Teredo. Despite the surprise that
Teredo does indeed seem to work (I expected to have at least some
problems in the beginning after reading the RFC) the speed felt like a
1999 6bone commemoration day, with massive latency and transfer rates of
about 30KBps max. Was no fun. I suspect anyone who enables Teredo on his
client and hits this relay for the first download will be a lost cause
to IPv6 for quite a while.

Could someone (Consulintel, OCCAID) please make sure this relay does not
get hammered that bad by prepending or limiting the announcement scope?
