Connecting a app to a network is a fundamental change, so perhaps
change the app to become a "network app".  A piece of software
connected to a network turns from a product into a service.

"Programmers" is to a wide group of people.  I am PHP programmer. How
will ipv6 impact me? nothing, probably.  Having to deal with ip stuff
and low level networking stuff only affect a subset of programmers. It
may break curl, or some sockets implementation of this and that, then
I will download a replacement class that is ipv6 aware.

There are two groups of programmers, a)  these that have programming
only as a job,  and  b) these that invest time beyond that. The first
group is obviously not ready for ipv6 at all, maybe have not even
heard about ipv6...and will not know anything about it until is
something obligatory.  Perhaps this also happens in other groups of
people... most people reading mail-list are probably of the B group.
