Thanks for reminding me!  I just tried the functionality, and found a
bug in the code.  It should be fixed in svn trunk now.

Full IPv6 exit support isn't there yet, of course, but hidden services
on IPv6 addresses should work.  With trunk (or or later),
you'd use a syntax like
   HiddenServicePort 80 [::1]:8080
to have a hidden service at ::1.

BTW, looking at the archives, I see that I told you that I would "be
sure to merge this patch once 0.2.1.x is branched".  I think I have
learned that I am forgetful, and so from now on, I should not say
"This patch will be merged later".  Instead, I should say "Please
remind me later if this patch has not been merged."  This way, there
will be two people trying to remember everything instead of just one.
