bull.  explain using a tunnel broker to anyone who isn't a network 
engineer.

oh, and then make that work inside a typical F500 corp network with 
restrictions on inbound and outbound ports, no admin user access to 
desktop machines, etc.


Until the orgs that support the developers find that v6 is a priority 
(through whatever means it happens - neteng/IT/etc pushing it up the chain 
or politics/marketing pushing it down the chain) and it's functional on 
the typical corp desktop, the typical corp application engineer is going 
to have no motivation (not to mention no time in his/her schedule to 
reengineer their platform) to support v6.

different than any other?)
