Ipv6?

For those of you that develop server and/or networking applications, how many of you are supporting IPv6?

I hadn't really considered supporting IPv6 until I was reading an article where the author said that all new Winsock development should use the new IPv6 functions instead of the older IPv4 stuff.

It really isn't a big deal to incorporate support for IPv6, but I was just curious what some of your thoughts were on this.

IPv4 does everything we currently need... And IPv6 is supposed to be compatible with the old quad addresses, so my view on this is to let the early adopters get the bugs out and when (if?) IPv6 become prevalent, we'll switch.
