IPv6 geolocation? LOC RRs?

Is geolocation of IPv6 addresses expected to work? As in /api/{key}/forecast/conditions/q/autoip.json?geo_ip=2001:0db8::1234

I tried mine - which is in MaxMind's database, and got a no match response.

IPv4 works, so I'm reasonably sure I'm using the API correctly.

IPv6 support would be a good thing - although the databases are still maturing.

We don't currently have IPv6 support or DNS LOC record lookup yet, but we could certainly look into it if sufficient interest is there.
