Yeah, I just learned.  They are here in the room right now (IPv6-track)
and will soon discuss their experiences.

After some initial troubles (*), i now try and, and my results
are a bit unhappy -- none of them works well from a ipv6-only host (i just
drop v4 packets in my iptables OUTPUT chain).

They load, but very slowly. :)

Dual-stack works, and about 50% of the packets come over ipv4 and 50% from
ipv6 for the entire site first page load.  (I think the only viable
migration goal for content providers must be to make content compatible
with ipv6-only hosts)

(*) I fought with the worst locked-down conference private space IPv4
NATed radio networks ever: I must run my openvpn over tcp to tcp port 443
on my server, else the crap net eats up all packets. It even eats up
(link-)local ipv6 packets. per client!
