Thanks to an off-list hint from a Brocade contact after a list member
helpfully forwarded my message, I was told to look out for something real
soon now, and sure enough on the knowledgebase now v7.3.00 for
FCX/FSX/etc/etc is released and contains lots of IPv6 features; as usual
check the release notes for the details.

Also worth mentioning, in relation to the other recent thread about
configuring lots of VLANs at once, is the newish "Multi-range VLAN"
feature "allows you to use a single command to create and configure
multiple VLANs.", which appeared in v7.02.02. The example is:

vlan 16 17 20 to 24
ta e 1/1/1
