Default How to configure OpenBSD (5.1) to make use of Comcast's native dual stack IPv6

Hi everyone!

I've been using FreeBSD and now OpenBSD to make a custom basic router/gateway firewall for my Comcast cable Internet connection. It works beautifully (only gets rebooted when it's time to upgrade from one release to another ie, the recent 5.0 to 5.1 release).

I have also since I previously used FreeBSD, been using a Hurricane Electric tunnel to get IPv6 connectivity to my internal LAN (as well as the router itself). That was fairly easily understood and implemented.

However, now that Comcast is slowly rolling out IPv6 in native dual stack to it's customers, I'd like to be able to take advantage of it via my OpenBSD box so I can have IPv6 connectivity without the need for the Hurricane Electric tunnel.

Does anyone on this forum know about how they plan to implement it? As I understand it, they are going to be using DHCPv6 to assign the info to the home gateway...can stock OpenBSD dhcp client handle this or must I use something else?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
