Maybe your ISP doesn't support it properly, mine does. And it works
well enough to carry most of e-mail (including yours), the DNS request
to my ISP's resolvers and a lot of other network traffic. Not to
mention my internal network where things like SMTP, IMAP, LDAP
or proxy connections all use IPv6.

That was before P2P protocols.

This was last year, and the router was a powerful PC running NetBSD.
But IPFilter still has a fixed size NAT table which a few "dedicated"
users can easily fill up. I don't want better NAT, I want get rid of it.

And with all those spying and filtering deep packet inspection appliances
out there I'm very happy to use a protocol that they don't support.
