Just to add a data point; we run several IPv6-only home-networks
connected over radiolinks to our Lab, were a dual-stack router
provides relaying using faithd/totd to the IPv4 world. Nowadays,
with NetBSD-current at home I can do everything I used to do
over IPv4 over IPv6 without any problems or hassles; it just works.
There are a few exceptions, one is ntp (mainly because the previous
xntpd in the tree would be a nightmare to port to IPv6, I hope with
the new one this job is easier and will be completed soon).
