As I know, BT and P2P (some apps), already are using IPv6 ;-)
show flow logs please.
It's not a flow log, but..

"Observations of IPv6 Traffic on a 6to4 Relay" (in ACM SIGCOMM CCR Internet Vital Signs special issue, January 2005),

.. (section 4.4) shows that a small number of hosts (like 7-8 or so) in April 2004 used BT through our 6to4 relay.

The use may or may not have gone up since, this mainly depends on whether v6 support has been included in BT. My (unverified) recollection is that BT supports v6 off-the-box in most linux distros, but I may be wrong.
