It would sure be nice if OpenAFS worked with IPv6. It's really easy to 
deploy IPv6 to a NAT'd network and Kerberos works over IPv6 without a 
problem. Maybe you could use IPv6 to fix the Kerberos name/ip issues and 
then use the rest of OpenAFS behind a NAT. It's ugly but... it would 
would be kinda cool.
