Default ipv6 documentation: net-dns/totd substitutes

Hey folks, thought I'd ask here, since I can't find answers on what's maintained in our ipv6 packages.

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=326771 asks for updates to our sadly neglected ipv6 guide (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/ipv6.xml). I removed the note that said to keyword net-dns/totd, now that it's been stabilized. totd is a DNS proxy used for 6to4 conversion.

The problem, as I outlined in comment #6, is that we should not continue referencing totd in the guide. It's maintainer-wanted, no-herd, only available for two arches (x86 & amd64), and only stable on x86.

Do we have a more cross-platform alternative that's actually maintained? Who does ipv6 commits these days? Given the much-hyped death of ipv4 addresses sometime in the next several months, it's important that we find a suitable alternative and get it properly documented, with help from its maintainers, in the guide.

Thanks for your help.

GDP, PR, etc.
