Hope you have a good time. SFO is a nice city :)

We definitely need to support XPs. As far as I can tell, Dibbler is the
only way to run DHCPv6 client on them. I'm not sure about the server,
but it is also a possibility. I know that Microsoft is terminating
support for XP sometime in 2014, but they are still very popular.

Oh, can you go over the last couple mails on dibbler list? One guy
reported that Dibbler works on Windows 2012 when run from console, but
fails to start when run as a service. Can you contact him and check what
the problem is? It is possible that he was using older code version,
without your fixes.
