Even though most ISP don't offer IPv6 yet, it's actually quite easy to get 
IPv6 access by means of tunneling. The folks at are quite cool at 
that too. It's really simple, even i managed it ;-) After signup (don't 
worry, the service is completely free of charge) you'll get a tunnel, and 
after one or twoo weeks uptime of that tunnel you can successfully get your 
own /48 subnet routed over that tunnel

Now just think of parallel crawling with crawlers being located at different 
places all over the earth ;-) Now, this would be a tough one with regard to

Ah, okay, will have a look then.
