[RndTbl] Warning: OVH VPS 2016 line missing feature

OVH has a new line of SSD-backed KVM-hosted VPS servers starting at
C$4.99/month, with good performance, decent availability, pretty much an
all-round good deal.
Except for one little thing... No IPv6 support. At all.
According to the tech support rep I just spoke to, it's because the new
2016 lineup runs on OpenStack. I'm a little unclear on how this makes
it "impossible" to provide IPv6 functionality, but that's their claim.
It's 2016: new IPv4 addresses are no longer available. IPv6 is
supported by all major content providers (except Twitter, I think)- but
OVH doesn't consider this important, apparently.
FYI: their SoYouStart and OVH Dedicated Server lines still provide IPv6
service; it's only the new 2016 VPS system that doesn't. Ironically, the
older-generation (2014) system *did* support IPv6, but I can't order
that any more.
