While rsync works quite fine using IPv6 transport layer when using hostnames 
with AAAA records there seems to be no way to specify a literal IPv6 address on 
the command line 
$ rsync -6 --recursive rsync://rsync.de.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage . 
Welcome to ftp.join.uni-muenster.de, JOINs IPv6 FTP server. 
$ rsync -6 --recursive rsync://[2001:638:500:101::21]/gentoo-portage . 
rsync: getaddrinfo: [2001 638: Name or service not known 
$ rsync --version 
rsync  version 2.6.2  protocol version 28 
Doesn't work with 2.6.3pre1 also
