    No, wait, you don't understand how it works. The time that design
    alternatives should be examined is *BEFORE* code gets written.
    Back in the day, many alternatives to the overcomplex approaches
    taken in IPV6 were offered, but the priesthood was dead set on
    doing a Big New Protocol. After a while, the sensible people
    decided they had other things to do.

    Now? Now it's too _late_
