Looks like I've been using WordPress over IPv6 since May of 2006.

The only glitch was when validation of IP addresses (for the comment
table) was introduced, it didn't initially account for IPv6.

AFAICT WordPress supports IPv6 as is.  The open proxy checks probably
still only do IPv4 lookups, but I don't think there are any open proxy
blacklists for IPv6 yet.  (I might be just out-of-touch, though.)

(Since I was checking... I've been using WordPress since May of 2004
and IPv6 since August of 2000.  Just not together until May of 2006.)

Best regards,
