Geoff's speaking about this (again) at the Rome RIPE meeting, as I type. 
The webcast and slides should be available online. He says there's 
100megabits on at the moment, and nearly a gigabit peak on the 
whole /8.

(It's named ipv6, but plenty of v4 stuff included).

And "Private networks leak like crazy..." he says!
