Yeah, almost no demand for it (I think one person has requested it, 
making it probably the only thing to ever be requested that's only been 
less than a half dozen times, to give you an idea of the relative 
unpopularity), plus none of the developers have access to any IPv6 
connectivity. It would be a lot of work to support v6 because the IP 
validation and numerous other portions of the GUI would have to be 
modified to properly support v6. Don't expect to see it anytime soon, at 
least not done by any of the current developers. There's a long list of 
things that a huge number of people would benefit from that'll be taken 
care of before v6 is even considered. It'll be at least 2-3 years before 
it's looked at with any intent of being supported.

Unfortunate, but there are way too many other areas that could use 
improvement to consider focusing on something a minuscule fraction of a 
percent of the Internet could use.
