I read only briefly patch and IMHO it makes sense. My understanding 
about topic might not be good as well, as I never used Quagga with 
PtP interfaces myself. No time to test it though, because I have no 
time for Quagga until end of May.

Anyway, any test reports from users having problems and/or using PtP 
interfaces are most needed.

Thanks for your work, Andrew.
