IPv6 support

I'm having more and more visitors with IPv6 that are not tracked with Clicky (I know this, because web form tracks IP when sending).
It's time to reconsider plans for IPv6 support.

IPv6 Day! Please finally implement IPv6!

3.21% user use IPv6! And 7.69% in USA!

The problem is partly this:
~$ host -t aaaa static.clicky.com
clicky.com has no AAAA record

What protocol (ipv4/ipv6) the client access static.clicky.com has no relation to if the client access your site with ipv4 or ipv6

You either have to have different subdomains for ipv4 and ipv6 (which you don't want), or serverside include a goal or tracking only for ipv6.

How is left as an exercise for the reader ;-)

:-) ( also for the whitelabel shops, so win.staticstuff.net should also get a AAAA record.

People on IPv6 can still connect to IPv4 sites. The only impact this should currently have is that maybe the geolocation stuff won't be as accurate since the traffic might be getting routed through a gateway.

I would like to support IPv6 of course but it's way more complex that it appears on the surface.
