There is a lot of talk about "buggy" systems that are
unable to handle prefixes longer than 64; but I've yet
to encounter one.  I imagine if I did it would be
treated as a bug and fixed.  So to the question of
supporting different prefix lengths: Yes.  You should
support any valid IPv6 prefix length; it takes a few
extra lines of code in the beginning; but will save you
a lot of re-coding in the end.


/126's for point-to-points, and /112's for router LAN's 
here, 6 years and counting.
