Hmm... Well, my experience with IPv6 at this point is extremely limited
(just because I have a bunch of books doesn't mean I've had the time to
read them yet.  :-) )

I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to add a netwait_ipv6 variable and
use /sbin/ping6 instead, but I'm not sure what people would like in the
case that someone defined both netwait_ip and netwait_ipv6.  Ping them
both I guess?

It'd be easier for me if I had a good IPv6 environment to test in/with,
rather than enhance the script and make guesses at whether or not it
would work reliably.  Meaning: I'd be happy to spend the time to write
what's necessary, but it might be more effective for someone who already
has a good IPv6 setup to work on it.  Does that make sense?
