It's been an issuing weighing our our minds for a while.   We've gone 
dual stack but getting it into the last mile (ADSL) is quite hard and 
running a tunnel server is ugly.

Main issue is BRAS support from our vendor as well as ADSL CPE under 
US$100 (eg.  not Cisco 8xx series).

Moving packets is pretty easy.   We went to dual stack in the core in 
just a couple of months for a network spanning 3 continents.  Getting 
our customer management systems and BRASes talking IPv6 is going to take 
a lot longer.   Getting our systems group to IPv6 enable resolvers, dns 
etc is also taking longer than it should.
