"Programmers can't get IPv6 thus that is why they do not have IPv6 in their applications"....

It's very presumptuous for you to tell me what my development/test
priorities ought to be, and I can tell you for absolute certain that any
such badgering will be met with rolled eyes and quick dismissal. The
only way that things will get fixed is if there's a perceived need to
fix them. Getting corpro-IT to upgrade to v6 -- as if there is even a
corpro-anything with most phone apps -- just to be able to test against
v6 is a fantasy. Any developer who told me that we can't ship because
we don't have a v6 testbed without clear feedback via bug reports, etc
would be instructed on the difficulties of applying sufficient thermal
energy to large bodies of water.

The only way things are going to change is to make v6 a part of everybody's
day-to-day life. That means ISP's giving me and every other developer a
/64 at home at the very least.
