> Does anyone have any horror stories about deploying v6?

not horror, just had to back off.

small site.  so public servers provide multiple and diverse services.
if a hostname has a v6 address, then all services must be v6 capable
because clients do not retry the A record.

and, as someone pointed out earlier, hostname hacks do not work; a
referring link can not choose to yield v6.foo as opposed to foo
depending on the abilities of the link follower.

when i have copious spare time, i will try to sort services by v6
abilities and have another go.  but spare time is like spare money these
days, sigh.
