Spare time must be > 0 if you're willing to wait for peval to finish ;-)

Better, but not good (or even tolerable). There is a reason I didn't
provide an example of doing this kind of thing on IOS classic/XE.

The thing that EOS and JUNOS have in common that allows this to work is
a mechanism to store config state outside the main "running config".

In JUNOS that's the ephemeral DBs, in EOS they call it "URL based
import" for as-path and prefix lists.

If ArcOS doesn't already have something similar, I'd get it on the list.
