Poorly designed network plus poorly designed software... I don't know  
which chicken came first, and it doesn't matter.

IPv6 is totally different barnyard.  Build the v6 network properly -- one  
gateway (one router, vrrp, whatever) -- and retool the software properly.   
IPv6 doesn't have a broadcast address; as such if the software is setup to  
use an appropriate multicast target (presumably in "user defined" space),  
then it'll talk to exactly the right machines, and it's routable.
