I also need IPv6 support (AFAIK it's not possible to use a server whose 
IPv4 address might change which would require repeated DNS 
lookups[*])--however, as a quick workaround, using stunnel comes to 
mind, which lets you specify a local IPv4 address and in turn will 
connect to the real IPv6 address through a tunnel.
Alternatively, ssh/netcat might both be worth a look (the latter should 
allow to turn off encryption if two-factor authentication is not needed 
and you want to get rid of the "encryption overhead").

[*] that scenario can be addressed by re-establishing the aforementioned 
tunnel whenever the IP address changes

Kind regards, Markus
