I do.  I've had an HE IPv6 free tunnel up since 2009.  It just works.

No need to turn off IPv4, IPv6 is preferred over IPv4 when both
are available.

Maybe play with the -4 and -6 options a bit.  

I don't know why there is so much FUD on IPv6.  Once you understand 
how IPv6 addresses break down into network and local parts the rest
of the basics are just like IPv4.

I suggest you get a free HE tunnel and join the monkey house.
