As a data point, I've been successfully acting as a news peers towards one
IPv4 upstream, and two IPv6 upstreams.  This is running on a Linux 2.2.16
kernel, with glibc 2.2.4, and an IPv6 patch from Japan that applied
cleanly against 2.3.2.

Thing is, before something like this creeps into a production release, I'd
love to see others running other OS's report in.

Who is asking for IPv6 peering?  I'd like to peer with them as well and
really give this patch a workout under IPv6!
