Well, there are lots of who wonder about the applicability of MPLS
Has the MPLS implementation been tested for interoperability with Cisco
or Juniper routers?  Does ospfd speak and use LDP with this code?  What
about BGP/MPLS VPNs?  (I'm not attacking -- these are things that are
necessary when using MPLS in network cores.)
