True, there's also a difference between allowing myself access for
myself, and allowing access for my computers.

I'm currently using both of these methods for other things, but if I
just want to hit up a web server on my home network from a browser on
somebody elses computer, it's not a simple thing to get setup. Although
IPv6 would probably be even more difficult in that situation right now,
hopefully that will change in the future.
