So there *is* a BGP deficiency -- FreeBSD can't implement something
BGP knows about.

I like the patches as they are.

It is the job of FreeBSD to provide capability, not policy.

The BGP code gets to dictate the policy when it decides how to
use the capability.

So I *still* think the patches should go in.
