For our web presence, which has been dual-stack since 2004, we saw external IPv6 traffic rise 0.1% per year to 2010, when it 'leapt' to 1.0% and in 2011 so far the highest we've seen over any month is 1.8%, so it doubled in 2010 and is set to more than double in 2011.  OK, so 2% is still small, but from tiny acorns...

SMTP is still well under 1% though.
