We use IPPlan for ipv4 and a fairly flexible, but less fully featured 
management program called vim for ipv6.

Migrating our data out of ipplan to something else is a flashpoint that 
can lead to error, but we might have to do that.

It looks like the lack of ipv6 support in ipplan is partly due to the 
maintainer not wanting to support it, so we might be tempted to (if the 
license permits) fork the project and hack in support.  We have hacked 
it a lot already to build user-based containment between resources, so 
that we can have a vlan schema for many networks, and many customers 
(with their own logins, and only visability of their own subnets) in the 
same instance.  If we hack v6 support in, we could release the finished 
project - I think there was opposition to doing that thus far because 
the developer was embarrassed about some of the hacks ;-)
