Have you had a look at quagga-dev 10576? I feel that this general
approach might be a bit better as it doesn't yet introduce another
nexthop type, but there hasn't been all that much feedback on comparing
the two.

Quagga master supports NEXTHOP_IPV4_IFINDEX properly, so the only thing
that still has to be done on top of this patch would be adding a way
that allows routing daemons to set the NEXTHOP_FLAG_ONLINK via the IPC
protocol. (I only required that flag internally in zebra to address the
case of some recursive routes. Therefore, the patch didn't add a way to
set that flag via IPC, that shouldn't be too complicated though.)
