heh, may need to raise an issue in the bug tracker.  also noticed that if i launched system preferences -> network while ipv6 was enabled on the ppp0 it freaked out and cleared the v6 address until next router adv interval.

it doesn't appear to work automatically, vpn'ed in with iPhone with ... highly modern firmware.. ^W NDA?  Appears to only select the v4 address.

I think tmo in us has a v6 APN.  Not sure what other carriers are operating a v6 APNs but seems like a comprehensive list might be worthwhile.
