I use MD5 auth for BGP sessions every day (and have been doing so for
several releases). One could definitely wish for better integration -
having to specify MD5 key both in /etc/ipsec.conf and in the Quagga
bgpd config is not nice. But it works.

MPLS would be nice - but is not a high priority. That's what I use
Juniper and Cisco routers for. For MPLS to be of any use I'd also need
a working IS-IS implementation, and I believe Quagga isn't quite there
