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.
