Thanks. Although i cannot run the rpsltool (Debian packages libyaml-perl
and libyaml-syck-perl does not contain YAML::Any, probably the script
needs newer version), the example script is clear and readable enough.
The generated config is fine, i have just one note:

1) why use 'scan time 604800' in device protocol section?
Device protocol is a part of core functionality of BIRD
(i consider it slightly misleading that it has a protocol
section, like normal protocols) so it is needed for proper
working of BIRD. I would suggest keeping default value of
'scan time' or using something like 10 or 20.
