It seems the protocol daemons send this, but zebra itself does not 
send distance for routes when it redistributes. Although, at least 
ospfd and ripd do check whether DISTANCE is included in the message. 
(ospfd doesnt seem to use it though, AFAICT).

Its something to test out though. The daemons I've looked at clearly 
do expect zebra to possibly send distance information.
