Thanks for the information.  I'll add it to my list of stuff to look into.

Setting up a v6 tunnel is pretty easy.  Just go to a tunnel broker (I use 
tunnelbroker.net) and sign up to get your own bajillions of publicly-routable 
IPv6 addresses, and for instructions on how to set up the tunnel.  After you 
have a tunnel, you can fire up a radvd server and instantly all of the 
machines on your LAN should pick up the router advertisement and statelessly 
auto-configure themselves.
