I agree with this sentiment.  There comes a point where it really isn't 
worth spending any time faffing about.  Ten years ago, setting up IPv6 
piggy-backed over your IPv4 connection was an interesting exercise. 
Nowadays it really shouldn't be necessary.

Yesterday I spent a while making sure all my published services were 
advertised and working correctly over IPv6.  Quite pleasing.


Really do - switch to a proper ISP.
