oh, nice, and pretty fast! Thanks. When do you think will it make it's  
way into the debian-tree? I like getting automatic updates from the  
debian repository. But if you want me to I can compile it from scratch  
on my bird-dev-system to test the patch.
One more questions that I still couldn't find an answer for:
* how can I see which routes are announced to me on a BGP peering? I  
understand I can do a show route table <blah> but that doesn't  
necessarily show me the announcements from the host. On IOS I'd do  
'sho bgp ipv4 unicast received-routes'?

BTW: I've got an eBGP Multihop peering up and running in production  
now (it's nothing super-important, so I don't care if we run into bugs  
here), took me basically no time for setup and seems to work great. I  
really start liking bird a lot, and I love the filter language :)
