Tis. I want to add 'add a static route' and 'add an IP address' too.
And maybe use getsubopt for the interface name, maybe allow regexes
type of thing (???).
It's for someone who asked for example code, with the possible
intention of implementing a ifplugd-alike for Quagga. (Which
hopefully they'll get somewhere with. :) ).

My limited imagination:
qtool (too vague i think)
Any others? (Or pick one)
Also, I'd like to add a completion message to zserv, something like:
<command which completed>
<optional command specific completion data>
so that I can get rid of the timer in quagga.c, thoughts/objections?
