IPv6 for Fedora services?

I think the key issue is to get anything going. Anything is better than 
nothing. When other providers roll IPv6 PAs out, then those locations 
can be enabled, when available.
Of course there would also be the 6to4 option. Might also be smart, to 
check if those providers offer a 6to4 gateway, then 6to4 tunneling, 
could be used in the interim.
