Default Bug#497476: ITP: gw6c -- Client to connect to IPv6 tunnel brokers

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Craig Small <csmall@debian.org>

* Package name : gw6c
Version : 5.1
Upstream Author : Hexaco
* URL : http://go6.net/4105/download.asp
* License : BSD
Programming Lang: C
Description : Client to connect to IPv6 tunnel brokers

TSP is a control protocol used to establish and maintain static tunnels.
The Gateway6 client (gw6c) is used on the host computer to connect to a
tunnel broker using the TSP protocol and to get the information for its
tunnel. When it receives the information for the tunnel, the Gateway6
client creates the static tunnel on its operating system.

Hexaco have "helpfully" mixed their daemon code with their GUI code
which has some ugly license and is completely useless for non-windows
systems anyway. The source package will be fixed so it only has the
BSD licensed daemon code.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: lenny/sid
APT prefers unstable
APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

What's the advantage of this client over the already packaged tspc?
