I don't think so. (At least I don't know of anyone working on it.)

No, I don't know of any issues. (Although I must admit that I'm not an
IPv6 expert.)

One of the motivations we had when we changed how we route proxied traffic
as local (using policy routing instead of changing the IPv4 routing code)
was to make it much easier to port it to IPv6.

Ah, and good luck. ;)
