I do receive a lot of requests from African engineers enquiring about how to
connect using a tunnel. 

I would recommend that a tunnel server is installed somewhere in Africa
(Afrinic or University of Free State) sponsored 
by one of our known friends or even in each country to scare the main
telecom operator when you reach 10,000 subscribers :-)

You need to have all chances on your side. Time will tell.

Joe Public DSL user isn't interested in configuring a tunnel of their own or
testing anything.  They simply want to be able to update Facebook.

So yes, tunnelling works.  I do it.  Nishal does it.  Many other geeks like
us do it.  Until ISPs do it as a matter of course on consumer CPE, it's
really not going to help with the wholesale adoption of v6 at the edge :(
