I've had IPv6 at the co-lo for a year or two. Our fallback ADSL
line at work has had IPv6 for a while as well. I should have it
on cable modem at home this year or next. Mass rollout has begun,
actually. Don't forget mobile applications, especially in the
developing world.

I hope for some more servers, there are probable a lot people who want to serve, and who are using the bridge/relay bundle, but unable to activate the port forwarding. Be it because of technical limitations, because of bugs (upnp not working) or because of lack of knowledge/motivation to do it.

I think it would be good to have alpha support for IPv6 by next year
or so.
