Actually, I seem to recall some postings to the list stating that many of the popular bittorrent clients already do IPv6 if available.  So that would seem to be a good recipe for allowing P2P users to prioritize ahead of regular traffic.

How long do you think it will take for the P2P software authors to
transition over to IPv6? I'll bet that P2P users will be a lot more
likely to use IPv6 over Aunt May checking her email once a day.
