Do you have some magic wand that can make that happen?  It would seem the opposite is happening -- the price for IPv4 addresses is climbing, with rumors of some folks trying to corner the market. This is, of course, unsurprising given Economics 101 and the laws of supply and demand. Should make for interesting times ahead for those organizations that continue to demand IPv4 addresses.

My suspicion (hope?) is that the increased price of IPv4 (and operational challenges dealing with GGNAT) will encourage folks to take IPv6 more seriously.

(speaking only for myself)
