There's a small error in this pat of the summary. It is not the case
that stf interfaces are created instead of stf0 interfaces in all cases.
Here's a table showing the changes.
Command DEV Version
ifconfig stf stf0 old
ifconfig stf0 stf0 old
ifconfig 6to4 <fail> old
ifconfig stf stf new
ifconfig stf0 stf0 new
ifconfig 6to4 6to4 new
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
