Since I originally authored this patch, I have come to believe that it
might be unneccessarily complicated.  It is unlikely that a lot of
different "handlers" will exist here;  the only things I can think of
are VPLS support and BIER-MPLS multicast replication.  I'm not saying
it's a bad idea, but, well, this was in the README that I gave to 6WIND
with this code:

yes, I would also prefer just exporting the functions  and calling
them directly instead of adding a
handler layer. We can move to that later if it becomes necessary.
I understand that the handler layer is an overhead (as said by David's
note), and I agree with the solution for exporting the mpls functions that
allows route creation/deletion, but how about forwarding the right mpls
packet to the right vpls device with the device ptr? I don't see
another way.
