To expand the opinion set, how do Quagga, Bird, exaBGP, OpenBGPd hold up for
handling Multi-Protocol BGP Route Reflector duties in a BGP/MPLS environment
for a smaller ISP?  Quagga's documentation indicates that is does handle the
requirements.  Any one able to offer up real life experiences?  Or is it
better to handle in a physical router?  We being C based.
