Support for VRRP? Support for various other routing protocols
not covered by zebra/quagga -- at least not yet, if ever? Support
for line cards and other devices that do not exist in a format you
can plug into a PC?
Maybe there's nothing you can do about this last item, but
there's plenty that can be done on the software side -- just take a
look at all the protocols that have been identified as being
desirable, but not yet implemented by zebra/quagga.
Oh, and then there are all the operational issues where
zebra/quagga can't keep sessions going when a neighbor flaps, etc....
Those would require re-architecting the whole routing system, at
which point it might make a lot more sense to go with a different
implementation -- such as bgpd from OpenBSD.
