There are not very many IPv6 deployments on xDSL yet.

If you need an IPv6 connection to the net, there are service providers
that will assign you some IPv6 addresses and then you tunnel IPv6 to
them via IPv4. This way, you get most of the benefits of IPv6, while
using only IPv4 from your ISP.

Good point. Yep, I have also looked into that, and we have one or two in
Switzerland, but I think we'd only use those during the
initial "getting your feet wet" period.
