I, also as some random guy on the Internet, concur with Mike.

I've got numerous FreeBSD/Quagga boxes that have dozens of BGP sessions,
peering and transit.

The primary reason I chose Quagga was it's similarity with Cisco in
regards to the CLI (and it works with RANCID).

If you want true failover between two ISPs, you want BGP.
