I think we should approach this in a more structural way. Just switching
fl2003 over doesn't actually test that IPv6 works, or that all
IPv6-related code is exercised. It also means that if the fl2003 tests
fail we don't know why that is - the IPv6 code or the actual fl2003 code.

High-level functional tests are useful, but they're fairly expensive and
they aren't a replacement for proper unit testing.
