My favorite shoot-self-in-foot on that topic - I stuck a quad-A in for a host
that *was* IPv6-enabled on the production service, but it didn't have (at the
time) an IPv6-ready ssh daemon.  Hilarity ensued when using an IPv6-enabled
ssh client - you'd get back an RST packet real fast and it was Game Over.

So remember - there's probably more services you need to worry about. ;)
