Has the MPLS implementation been tested for interoperability

 I've tested it with Cisco only.

That itself is an important step.  If that works, I suspect the
code is
very much worth having as an optional component to NetBSD, though the
other items I mentioned are necessary for production use.

I have a couple of Cisco routers sitting idle here, and am on the
verge of having a machine I can run NetBSD on to test them against...

In particular, it's a Xen box, with virtual interfaces glued to the
external one via a bridge(4). When I get a moment, maybe this week,
I'm going to clone my old 4.0RC2 domU and upgrade it to -current,
then I'll merge in Mihai's patches and have a play!
