Hi, Baptiste, I know about ExaBGP, but I'm using BIRD to do all the BGP
stuff: loadbalancing via ecmp at webfrontends, routeservers, soft routers
etc, and now I need an external announces handling, so I've placed a
feature request here :). If honored BIRD developers will decide to not
implement this feature, I will look at another routing software.
