	We're using both cisco and juniper in Verio for our IPv6
services and have been since it's launch (I think it was Oct/Nov 03).

	Running the dual-stack native service has been fairly 
straightforward.  There are a few networks that are doing the dual-stack
native thing.  Others (eg: sprintv6 as seen in peoples traces to peters
v6 clock)  are doing tunneled infrastucture/overlay networks to
support their IPv6 customers.  This obviously has drawbacks that if
you aggregate packets in a few locations (eg: asia, east-us, west-us, europe)
for your tunneled stuff then have a full-mesh for their igp, the metrics
don't always make sense.  Combined with tunnels going long distances
that don't reflect RTT and people still doing full transit to anyone
they can tunnel with cause some interesting paths.

	One thing i find promising/good:  Lots of people here sent
their v6 traces to the list, so it's not just a few random geeks
messing with v6 as much anymore, it's there.
