IPv6 only Round Robin

I've found the need for such a round robin on multiple occasions... I have my own, but I don't really want to hand it out as my domains won't always be as reliable as 'efnet.org'... so would it be possible to make an IPv6-only round robin. irc.ipv6.efnet.org or ipv6.efnet.org make the most sense to me.

Yes, I made my own too that consisted, but irc.efnet.org contains ipv4 addresses as well...

I realize the irc.efnet.org round-robin contains ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.. not really what I had in mind.

My main reason was for when a user asked "Hey, what ipv6 servers does efnet have?" If I told them irc.efnet.org, and they expect to be connect to an ipv6 but inadvertently connect to an ipv4 server, that may be something they didn't want to do. I personally used to use an ipv6 tunnel from home to avoid having to have my cable modem IP exposed to IRC. I actually set up a firewall rule to disallow myself from accidentally connecting via ipv4. With a an ipv6-only round robin, that could be avoided and users would not have to keep track of every EFnet ipv6 server.

What would really be neat is irc.ssl-ipv6.efnet.org for the 5 servers that support it.

This server recently delinked, and should probably be removed from the round-robin :)
