Re XMPP: Add DNS AAAA records, make sure your jabber server listens/connects
if IPv6 is available, and it "just-works".

Other stuff: Firefox and IE seem to just work too.

Most _new_ libraries are supporting IPv6 transparently, so if you're using
one of those you're fine.  If you're doing lower level networking then you
might need to look at migrating to newer DNS lookups used for connecting. I
migrated VIRC a few years back (patches still to be merged *sigh*), and the
changes were pretty small.
