That includes DNS, by the way. I'm deploying new DNS servers, and would be *very* interested in how to convince BIND 9.2.4 to answer IPv6 queries.

If you give the box BIND runs on an IPv6 address, it'll use IPv6 to perform queries when remote nameservers have IPv6 glue records. If you have your DNS server's address put into glue records, it will receive IPv6 queries and hence send out replies over IPv6.
