I figured that the unbracketed notation of IPv6 addresses was okay because on
another configuration "deny from 2001:470:80e9:0:227:13ff:fe67:7c63" works just
fine.  But at your request, I tried adding brackets to the IP address and this
is what I get:

root@telly:/etc/apache2/sites-available# /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
Syntax error on line 40 of /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
The specified IP address is invalid.!

Line 40 is:
allow from [2001:4860::]/32

As I understand the documentation, "order allow,deny" should default to deny in
the case of only "allow from ..." statements.  So if all my statements are
allows, then it should deny everything else.  This seems to work fine on the
IPv4 addresses, but not on IPv6.
