Multiple FIB support has not been added to the IPV6 code.
it requires someone who actually understands IPV6 (which is not me)
but it is not really rocket science.

if there is someone who has access to, and understands IPV6,
then I can guide them on what needs to be done.

I know that CISCO STBU (ex Ironport) are looking for this to be done.
Maybe they can sponsor someone to do it. (but I don't have time).
