[6bone] Ipv6 Enabled Web Site

On my site (www.fpsn.net) to all we do is check for colons in the 
REMOTE_ADDR environment variable (we also use apache 2) and it seems to 
do the trick rather well.   With a successful IPv6 connection IPv6 users 
see a small blurb at the bottom:


Internet Protocol Version 6 aware user detected.

Hope this helps.
