Heh... that's why I put all kinds of question marks and hedges :)
That's disappointing about aws. On the other hand, if aws lights
up v6, a huge amount of content will be v6 capable in one swell-foop.
Even if the only thing that supported IPv6 was ELB, and everything else was
still IPv4 internally, that'd put a lot of traffic on IPv6 very quickly, and
ELB is something *entirely* controlled by AWS (you CNAME to an ELB FQDN, AWS
takes care of resolution and proxies a TCP connection to your instance).
