I suggest the test-tool has 2 bgp-sessions and tests if what it put in
did or did not come out on the otherside and in what shape or form.

There are already atleast 2 projects which have BGP-code which could
probably be adapted:
http://code.google.com/p/exabgp/
http://code.google.com/p/bgpsimple/

Can I suggest a fuzzer as wel ?
