to paraphrase MO from many years ago (as i do not have a direct quote),
do not use home appliances as production routers.
there are niches where routeflow/vandervecken are usable. there are
niches where quagga/bird/openbgp are useful.
but not core/backbone of any non-trivial network. they might be usable
for _slightly_ more than trivial if your business model values your time
