/120 works well until you get > 99 (if you want the decimal
representations of addresses to look the same)... or if your techs
understand hex.

10.0.0.123 <-> 2001:db8:vv:ww::7b

I have used /116 in the past.  This gives you 1-fff at the end.

10.0.0.123 <-> 2001:db8:vv:ww::123

Hopefully, this is future proof(ish) in that IPv6 only hosts (...when
that happens...) on the same subnet can use
2001:db8:vv:ww::[a-f][0-f][0-f] without danger of collisions with
IPv4/IPv6 hosts.
