Regular Expression for IPv6 addresses

Folks,

My company, Dartware, have derived a regex for testing whether an IPv6 address  
is correct. I've posted it in my blog:

This has links to the regular expression, a (Perl) program that tests various  
correct and malformed addresses, and a Ruby implementation of the same.

Hope it's useful.
