This document provides an overview of various ways to tunnel IPv6
packets over IPv4 networks.  It covers mechanisms in current use,
touches on several mechanisms that are now only of historic interest,
and discusses some newer tunnel mechanisms that are not widely used
at the time of publication.  The goal of the document is helping
people with an IPv6-in-IPv4 tunneling need to select the mechanisms
that may apply to them.
