I'm fairly sure mirrorbrain can use ipv6 geolocation data if it's set up 
to do so. My install certainly does.

Having said that the maxmind geoipv6 data seems to be fairly crap, for 
example it seems to geolocate all freenet6 addresses to canada. The 
database you link to seems to have the same problem (at least from the 
headline it gives me).

Building a geolocation database from whois data is one thing but an 
accurate geolocation database requires you to go further than that since 
the country where an IP block is registered in the whois database may 
not be the country the IPs are used in.

what do you see if you use ipv6 to browse to
