Failover how much complexity will it add?

There are any  problems with quagga+BSD/Linux that you know or something 
like that?

Or in your scenario a "cisco/juniper box" is a requirement?

I'm asking this because I'm always  running BGP with upstreams providers 
using quagga on BSD and everything is fine until now.
