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.
