This is especially good news as there are two independent open source
BPG implementations supporting this!
How robust these BGP programs are? are they used and how widely in

alternatives to commercial routers in certain sites which should be
doable in BW sense, at least. Normal PC can handle several 1G ethernet
connections without a problem.
