Well, the good news is that there's a third zebra species name that's
still up for grabs -- Grevy.  There for the taking by anyone who feels
that another fork is necessary.

For what it's worth, I agree with the maintainers.  It's well out of
scope of routing protocols, and a serious pain to maintain per platform.
 The Quagga command line is not actually the Cisco command line, and
dumping the kitchen sink into it in an attempt at convergence sounds
like a bad plan for Quagga.  It may make sense for some users, but can't
be good for the project.
