Well, route6d and mrouted, but those are hardly different from this 
point of view. I just like the idea of a fairly rich base system.

Regarding pkgsrc, it's a possibility, but it would make this package a 
bit strange since it uses the makefiles from /usr/share/mk exclusively. 
Is that considered good practice for pkgsrc packages? And wouldn't it be 
better as a syspkg, perhaps not included by default (assuming syspkgs 
are fully operational)?

However, given the response thus far, I don't see it likely that this'll 
end up in base, so I'll have to add some eggs to the mix anyways.
