--- Comment #5 from Bjoern A. Zeeb <bz at FreeBSD.org> ---
It's rather unfortunate that this did not g through a proper review process and
was handled within a few minutes of reporting by yourself.

The scope change doesn't look particularly great to me at all.  Also the
reference in the commit message (RFC 2373) is not good as that RFC has been
obsoleted at least twice and updated a couple of times.

Also changing the output format of ifconfig unfortunately break a lot of
scripts of people usually so should have been handled carefully.  I strongly
object to an MFC of the scope part at least.

I am also worried that not having the "inet" first anymore will break scripts
(the much I prefer IPv6 being a default).  Another reason to be very careful
with MFCing this.
