[radvd-devel-l] New option idea: Base6Interface

I've been thinking it would be nice to have an option like
Base6to4Interface, but that takes the IPv6 address/prefix from the
specified interface, and uses that instead of having to specify the
prefix in the radvd conf file.

Example (assuming eth0 is the LAN and eth1 is the WAN with an IPv6
address that's already been assigned):

interface eth0 {
        AdvSendAdvert on;
        MinRtrAdvInterval 3;
        MaxRtrAdvInterval 10;
        prefix ::/64 {
                AdvOnLink on;
                AdvAutonomous on;
                AdvRouterAddr on;
                Base6Interface eth1;

Taking this one step futher, would it be possible to get radvd to act
more like a dumb repeater, including any information that was received
(such as RDNSS and DNSSL)?

Thanks & Regards
