Query times using IPv6 seem significantly higher than those for IPv4 to
both a and b.gtld-servers.net, but as far as you can trust traceroute it
doesn't seem as if the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for each host end up in
wildly different places...

Anyone else care to comment?  The hop count is suspiciously lower for
IPv6 than for IPv4, and has twice the latency (coming from Europe too).
But again, this is traceroute `wisdom'.
