On a more serious note, I can on my Ubuntu machine just "apt-get install 
wide-dhcpv6-client" and I get dhcpv6, it'll properly put stuff in 
resolv.conf for dns-over-ipv6 transport, even though the connection 
manager knows nothing about it, at least dual stack works properly.

Can one do the equivalent easy addition to OSX?
